Utah's Canyons Resort has been named a Top 10 North American ski resort in the latest SKI Magazine reader survey.

The recognition — the Canyons earned the 10th overall ranking — marks the first time the Park City-area resort made it into the Top 10 of the magazine's annual list.

It was lauded for adding 300 prime acres of intermediate and advanced trails and for widespread upgrades in both the resort village and on-mountain dining.

"Canyons has made a clear commitment to elevating its ranking through its infrastructure investments in the past three years," Chris Phillips, the publisher of SKI Magazine, said in a statement announcing the ranking.

Mike Goar, Canyons' managing director, said work on the resort is continuing.

This year will see the addition of new lodging and dining properties, three all-new terrain parks and continuing work on an 18-hole championship golf course, he said.
