Every year around this time online ski stores need to clear space for new winter (and next year’s) gear. So there are more than just back-to-school deals to be had out there, especially if you’re active outside during winter months skiing or whatever.

Safely Ski from A to Z -Childrens Book

Early this ski season I was contact by Mary Palmer who also lives here in Park City. She found this blog, noted we had two young kids, and offered to send us a copy of her children’s ski book: Safely Ski from A to Z

Generation Alta

Here is a good one from Salomon Freeski TV. It’s about five minutes long, featuring some LCC local shredders who have been Alta pass holders since they were very small children. Fluid, natural, powder skiing…worth a watch.

One for the Road

Teton Gravity Research premiered their new film, “One for the Road,” last Saturday in Jackson, WY. Here is the play-by-play. I went to a premier up in Jackson once before, but considering it was almost a decade ago I couldn’t tell you which of their films it was that I saw. That was a […]

Go Fasssstttttt!

That’s what Ellie kept yelling at the top of her lungs on her first day skiing from the chair lift, last Tues February, 16th 2010. She rode up Sunnyside lift at Alta three times. She was between my legs for each run, and the last one we went top to bottom without stopping. On the […]
