I Am Lucky To Be Alive – A Snowbird Cautionary Tale

My ribs have been hurting me lately, so I thought I would share the worst day of skiing I’ve ever had in my life. What you are about to read took place on April 9th, 2008 at Snowbird, a little over 6 months ago.
Wednesday the 9th was just another epic April powder day at The Bird…until I crushed a tree at over 30mph. I was stoked that morning because the last two days had…

The Heart of the Wasatch – Snowbird Dining and Hiking

Living in Utah provides a unique and incredible lifestyle that often goes overlooked by those passing over our state and heading straight for Colorado.

Home Sweet Home –  Arriving Back in Park City in Time for Fall

After living on the road for a month, and eating out three times a day, you can’t imagine how good it feels to be in your own bed with access to your own kitchen. Kevin and I had an incredibly successful trip and collected more information than we know what to do with.

Steamboats Springs – Eating at Freshies and Saketumi Sushi

Like every individual ski destination sprinkled across Colorado, Steamboat offers something a bit different that its neighbors. Imagine someone sticking a little piece of Texas in the Rockies and infusing it with an old west laid back feeling. Now toss some ski bums, ranchers, hippies, and cowboys in the mix and discover what Steamboat is all about.

We pulled in on Friday and were greeted by our hostess, Emily. Emily and her husband run The…
