The Canyons is great for families with little kids; Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants-themed snowboards and skis appeal to young ones. But the large resort offers enough varied terrain for skiers of all abilities.
Park City has very personalized children’s programs, with a maximum of five per group. Young teens can take ski and snowboard tours with older teenagers. And the year-round Alpine Coaster and tubing park offer non-ski options. Deer Valley, the smallest of the three, still has plenty of beginner through expert trails, and a terrain park.
