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.
