Definitely some truth here. I had a PCMR pass last season and Canyons the year before. PC is wayyy easier to navigate and is just laid out better in general. Canyons can definitely be lifts... to get to cat tracks... to get to lifts... to get to cat tracks...
But with that said you can't argue Canyons has more and better terrain than PC. I don't really ski park much these days and as such I found myself kinda bored at PC by the end of the season. Jup is a shit show on a pow day and you can only hike the Peak, Scotts, and High West but so many times. Definitely some fun terrain that gets overlooked off of Pioneer, but that lift runs so slow it will drive you crazy after awhile.
People laugh, but Deer Valley is my favorite in Park City a lot of days. Not much in the way of huge cliffs if you're trying to make the cover of Powder, but the Chutes are fun when they get nice and wind-loaded and there are a ton of great tree runs. Plus most of the skiers there are just lapping the groomers so the good stuff isn't tracked out anywhere near as quickly.
