Day 1 - Wednesday Feb 3rd - Here I am blasting off from FLL flying to Salt Lake City on Southwest. Landed in PHX where I changed planes and had a 2 hour layover. During that time, I had a salad.
I rented my ski equipment from Canyon Sports.
Also pictures is my rental car, a Chevy Spark, and a visit to Whole Foods for a salad.
Best Western SLC
This is where I stayed for 3 nights, the Best Western Plus Airport SLC. The "Plus" version of a Best Western means it has a swimming pool, fitness room, business room, and laundry room. I didn't use any of these features. Instead I picked this hotel because of the shuttle to the airport, the free breakfast, and I was earning points.
Day 2 - Thursday Feburary 4th - Here I am at park city.
It was snowing and cold. In 2015 Park City and Caynon's Resort were
bought out by Vail Resorts. They were merged into the largest ski
resort in the USA, and now it's simply called Park City Ski Resort.
A gondola links boths resorts to make one. The best thing about Park
City is being able to park your car steps from the lift. Take
the Frist Time lift to the top, head to the left, and that leads to the Cresent
life which will take you to the top. After a long day of
skiing, it's nice to take off the skis and be steps from the car.
Here's the skating rink and ticket area of park city. Also shots of the coffee shop and fire place where many come to warm their hands.
I took a run down the First Time trail to get warmed up, then made my way to the top of Cresent.
This is the top of the Bonaza lift where the Home Run trail starts. This is the longest trail on the mountain. Most people will recognize these pictures after seeing them on the web cam.
This is a blue square trail called Georgeanna at the top of the McConkey's Express. From here I took the Pioneer lift to the top, and headed around the Jupiter Access side.
Here's the Gondola that takes people to the Canyons side. Nice views while heading over.
Over on the Caynons side, here's Panorama, which leads to more trails that travel under bridges.
Here's pictures of the Red Pine Road trail, pictures of the lake with the Orange Bubble lift, and two pictures of a trail called Echo. I made it to the far right side of the map, skiing down the Boa trail. From there I made my way back to the Park City side taking the Gondola. I was whipped at this point, about 4 hours of skiing just to get from one side of the resort to the other and back.
Can it be? Yes it is, the Red Iguana.
I came here at 3pm on a work day, and the place was full.
Pictures of chips with mole sauce, veggie fajitas, salsa with guac, and a side
of rice. I ate half, and took half back to the hotel to eat later.
Day 3 - Friday February 5th - Here I am at Deer Valley.
Pictures of the Bandana Trail.
Pictures of the Dakota trail.
Here's pictures of Stein's Way, a black diamond trail. I made it down without wiping out.
More shots of the resort area. After 3 hours of skiing, I was whipped and had enough.
Can it be? Yes, Moochies.
An eggplant sub with onion rings, fry sauce, and jumping jalepeno sauce.
Day 4 - Saturday February 6th - Flying home, this is the line waiting to get out of PHX airport. Flights coming home were ontime, thanks Southwest.
Observations: Great trip visiting the new Park City resort since they combined with Canyons.
