The skiing at Snowbird has been unreal. Yes, skiing. While the rest of the Wasatch is hunkered down, sitting out the back-to-back storm cycles because closing days have come and gone, diehard locals are rejoicing. Nineteen inches in the last 48 hours and more on the way.
If you hate skiing alone, you can't be shy. I had the ultimate dilemma today. None of my friends could come out to play. It was a Tuesday; a work day for most and forecasters had called Wednesday the day to catch the Powder Flu. Not today.
It’s inevitable. Hit the Snow Show and immediately want to replace every piece of winter gear you own. The four-day event at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colo.,last week welcomed more than 18,000 members of the snow sports industry and nearly 1,000 winter sports brands.
The 2016 Snow Show has good news for those of us who love to wear our baselayers as clothes. The mountain lifestyle continues with even more adds to the fun vibe with colorful prints in both leggings and tops.
The largest snowsports-specific trade event in the U.S. is set for Denver, Colo.,Thursday-Sunday for a happy group of buyers and brands. The biggest pre-show buzz is they’re psyched because the Snowspnorts Industries America (SIA) Snow Show is moving.
I’ve never completely understood the allure of celebrity. I’d much rather have a photograph of me and friends than me and actors who don’t know me, but it’s there…and it’s here in Park City, Utah. If you are skiing or riding in the neighborhood, have some "parkarazzi" fun at the annual Sundance Film Festival.
Just do it, I told myself as I aimed my beel directly at Will and took a deep breath. It was the day of reckoning. Our guides warned us that backcountry snowmobiling was no walk in the park and now we knew what he meant.
January is here and that means the Outdoor Retailer Show is here. When SMAK PR and Allied Feather and Down invited me to a preview glamping event to set the mood for the show, do you think I considered saying no? I said yes and hopped on a Scott fat bike to begin my afternoon of adventure.
Olympic ski legend and Deer Valley’s iconic ambassador Stein Eriksen has died. The Norwegian champion known for his impressive coif, impeccable ski technique and eponymous lodge passed away quietly at his Park City home Sunday, December 27, 2015, surrounded by family. He was 88 years old.
After controversy, delays, zoning battles, the doors finally open to Hidden Peak’s crown jewel Dec. 26, 2015. The Summit was part of Dick Bass’ and Ted Johnson’s vision when they first founded Snowbird in 1971, but it’s not so easy building things on federal land. Forty-four years later, the 23,000 square foot “The Summit” opens for year-round dining and epic views.
Gifting is an art. Here are SnoCountry.com’s fun ideas to help you navigate the last minute trails.
I woke up to new snow Tuesday. The biggest dump so far in Utah. Ski Utah called it their signature “Monster Dump” in Little Cottonwood Canyon during their annual pre-season press conference. The irony is that in every single past year, I was skiing instead of attending the conference. This year no resorts are open.
There are only a handful of "givens" when it comes to skiing in the Wasatch. It used to be the snow. Nope, not anymore. A lineup of traffic as far as the eye can see on powder days in Little Cottonwood Canyon? Yep. That’s one. A massive crowd at the top of Rustler on the “first” closing weekend of Alta? Yep, that’s another. Epic food at Snowbasin. Check. But the absolute one thing guests and TV celebs can count on when they ski Park City is Deer Valley’s opening the first weekend in December.
