  • Summer on the Slopes

    Mountain slopes aren't just for skiing perfect groomers in the winter. It seems crazy but the slopes you fly down on skis seem so much steeper when bare. Summer is a great time for enjoying some laid-back fun at your favorite resorts. Here are a couple of fun events I'd love to attend.

    Music festivals are easy-access and fun for all. Many resorts host them, including Brundage near McCall. It's called the Idaho Down Music Festival, and it's this coming weekend.

    Canyons in Park City has a new music series this summer. It's called Friday Night Beats and BBQ and best of all, the music is free. This is definitely on my summer to do list.

    If you are looking for something a little more challenging, there are a ton of options from alpines slides to zip lines. (A-Z, see what I did there?) I've got my eye on trying out the Hiawatha biking trail near Lookout Pass. This trail has been built along an old stretch of scenic railroad and includes the tunnels and bridges.

    For a little friendly competition, Snowbird is hosting a series of mountain bike races, the Full Suspension MTB series. Actually, Snowbird plays host to a bunch of cool competitions all summer long.

    Finally, this one is not strictly ski-slope related, but I want to include fishing and one of my favorite blogs, the Brighton Anglers. They have a number of great posts from fishing spots throughout the area. I admit that I've never fly-fished (at least successfully), but everytime I look at the site, I get the urge to try. They make it look so easy!

    This is by no means meant to be a comprehensive list. Just a few of many things that caught my eye as cool or different around our area. Check out any resort's summer offerings and get out there! Winter will be here before we know it.

  • "I Fix Park City"

    This is a fantastic video showing the "behind the scenes" of Park City Mountain Resort.

    The video is posted here by Judson Productions as part of the PCMR Film Festival.

  • It's Never Too Soon...

    Watching this video has us looking forward to epic powder days next season.

  • Olympic Dreams

    Here in Utah we’ve been celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Olympic Winter Games held in Salt Lake City. It’s hard to believe it has already been that long, but I have a Roots beret gathering dust to prove it. There has even been talk of making another bid to host the Games again in the future.


    Men's 50K Cross-Country race during the 2010 Olympics

    If you are a fan of winter sports like we are, the Games are always something to look forward to. During the 2010 games held in Vancouver, we had the opportunity to spend some time, along with some Pisten Bully colleagues and clients, at the Whistler venue. One of the highlights was skiing the epic Whistler-Blackcomb resort and seeing the Pisten Bully fleet used to maintain that awesome ski area. The buzz surrounding the Olympics was beginning to die down, since the downhill events were all over by the time we skied there. But the gold medal hockey game, USA vs. Canada, made an afternoon at the pub pretty exciting.

    Wandering around in Whistler Village, we came across Miss Whistler and Miss Blackcomb dressed as their respective mountains. The crowns represent the famous Peak 2 Peak gondola. If you look closely, you can see little red snow groomers out on the trails!
