Hilton Grand Vacations Establishes Brand Presence in Park City, Utah at Canyons Resort with Announcement of Sunrise Lodge, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club

Hilton Grand Vacations (“HGV”) today announced plans to open Sunrise Lodge, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club within the Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah as ski season begins this November. Ideally located at the base of the Sunrise lift, which leads to 4,000 acres of world-class ski and snowboard terrain at Canyons Resort, Sunrise Lodge will offer a premier vacation experience for HGV timeshare owners and guests. Earlier this month, HGV was selected by developer Resort Finance America to manage the property and to provide timeshare sales and marketing services.

November 21 marks the official opening date of the 83-unit Sunrise Lodge, enabling guests to be among the first to hit the slopes at the award-winning Canyons Resort, slated to open for the season on November 23.  According to Hilton Grand Vacations President Mark Wang, “Park City is an absolutely spectacular destination and the ideal place for a new Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort. It is our privilege to launch Hilton’s timeshare brand in Utah with the debut of Sunrise Lodge.  HGV’s selection to bring this gorgeous property to life is a testament to the quality of the vacation experiences we deliver and a reflection of our commitment to innovative brand expansion.” [member]

As the newest ski property in Park City, Sunrise Lodge will offer superb ski-in access to the renowned Canyons Resort.  Recently recognized among the Top 10 North American resorts in Ski Magazine’s annual reader survey and just ranked the #4 Ski Resort in North America by Outside magazine, Canyons is Utah’s largest and most dynamic ski and summer resort. Reminiscent of a grand European mountain retreat, Sunrise Lodge features native mountain stonework and timber frame design.  The property offers spacious studios as well as one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom suites complete with inviting living areas and well-appointed kitchens; outdoor heated pool and whirlpool spas, fitness facilities, and ideal amenities including onsite ski equipment rental, complimentary high-speed internet, as well as complimentary year-round shuttle service within Park City.

The most memorable vacations are shared with family and friends, and our spacious, residential suite configurations feature up to four private bedrooms, gourmet kitchens and comfortable living areas with fireplaces – all ideal for great year-round mountain get-aways together. We look forward to making Park City vacations a favorite tradition for owners and guests.”
