Easily the best backcountry access on the Park City (PC) side of the Wasatch, and the side (slackcountry) at the Canyons rivals any resort in Utah. But beware the dreaded PC ridgeline snowpack. It is perennially more avalanche-prone than the Cottonwood Canyons due to shallow, weak snow, typically underlying strong windslabs.
