Ski Utah 2011: Keep Those Tips Up!
Tara McChugh hosted an incredible week in Park City. We landed just in time for a huge storm dumping over two feet on what was a previously not-so-snowy mountain. I didn't realize until I was doing it, but I really had no clue how to ride in powder that deep, so the trip was kind of a learning experience. We hit Park City for two days, Canyons, Powder Mountain, and Snowbird once each. Powder Mountain is a must-do. On the next to last day we broke up the trip with a half day on snowmobiles in Utah's "Thousand Peaks."
I lost a camera in a cab in Salt Lake City. The girls don't dance at Pinky's until after 1pm. Tara's high school friends have impressive whiskey tolerance and taste buds. AJ drops in with a 360 and is banned from the sandwich shop. Some dude was playing two guitars at once. Snowbird is no joke. Banksy does Park City. Bass' dog, Skoal, got out of the yard and bit the wealthiest lawyer in Utah. # stitches
I hope I get back there every year.

how is there this much snow under the lift two days after the snowfall?
