Park City, Utah

SnowmanI finally got around to posting Park City/Salt Lake city pictures on my Flickr account. There was plenty of snow there, at least a good 1-2 feet in some areas enough to make a fairly decent snowman (pictured) and a bunch of angry little snowmen (not pictured).

The snowboarding was pretty good while we were there, although unfortunately we did not get any new snow the whole time beyond what they were snowmaking on a day-to-day basis. The mountain itself is huge and provides plenty of room and opportunities for beginning and advance boarders alike, so we really enjoyed it. The south slopes of the mountain were incredible for several reasons. It was somewhat difficult to reach from the base due to the configuration of lifts, so the snow was much better due to the lack of skiers. Additionally, there were plenty of multi-million dollar homes right next to the slopes that allowed ski-in/ski-out capabilities.

While we were there, Clint introduced us to Settlers of Catan, which is a frustrating (but entertaining) strategy game. There were some pretty heated games as we cut off roads or refused to trade with one another due to other circumstances, but it was all in fun.

Spring Break

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006 @ 6:36pm

So here I am on the Tuesday of my spring break logging in from Starbucks high atop Snowshoe Mountain. The skiing has been somewhat okay so far, although it really starts to get icy near the end of the day. We got maybe 1/2″ of snow this morning, but not really enough to make a difference on skiing conditions. Silver Creek is closed for the season sadly, especially considering with the new terrain park elements they built all over the slopes. Oh well, maybe I’ll get to see it next year. It’s a shame we didn’t get that snow that dropped on Lincoln, Nebraska… It’s really pretty up here now, and they’ve added quite a few new buildings since we came here last year.

I’d take pictures, but alas I am without a decent camera. So you’ll just have to use your imagination at best. Until next time…
