Deer Valley Ski Resort, located in beautiful Park City, Utah has yet again been voted as the #1 ski resort in North America by the readers of SKI magazine.

Aside from its amazing tree skiing, fabulous addition of the new Lady Morgan chair, and top-notch customer service, I think what truly makes…

Yesterday was our first snow storm of the year, with total accumulations reaching around 6 – 8 inches in the mountains and 1 inch on my doormat – just enough to destroy my basil garden! When I got home last night, I immediately jumped into my slippers and pajama pants, mixed myself a delicious hot chocolate, and snuggled underneath my down comforter trying to warm up. With temperatures dipping below 30 in September, the hot…

The Loco Lizard Cantina at Kimball Junction in Park City is one of the restaurants that Casey and I visit on a regular basis. We don’t go every week, but we make it there about once a month or so. Why do we keep coming back? The Loco Lizard is reasonably priced for Park City, the food comes out fresh and fast, and you get bottomless chips and salsa (2 kinds!). What more could you…

While on a mountain bike/camping trip in Fruita, CO this summer, Kevin and I had the chance to sit down and read William A. Kerig’s book titled “The Edge of Never”. The book is an incredibly insightful and sometimes frightening look into the dangerous and inspiring lifestyle of extreme skiing while highlighting the lives of Trevor and Kye Peterson. For more information about the Edge of Never story – visit EdgeofNeverFilm.com.

With the fall colors changing faster than my garden is ripening, it’s time to start thinking about getting back into shape for skiing. Whether you are a back country skier or you frequent the lifts; skiing requires you to have strong knees, legs, a fit core, endurance, and coordination. I plan on picking up my gym membership tomorrow and becoming reacquainted with my old friend – the squat!
Here’s some great advice from a variety…

Last week, Kevin and I were invited to Spruce Restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria (formerly the Dakota Mountain Lodge). Needless to say we were beyond impressed. Spruce is exactly what Park City needed; a modern, sophisticated restaurant that is committed to excellent service and impeccable cuisine.
Our Spruce experience began at 6pm on Labor Day. As we pulled up to the Waldorf Astoria, we were promptly greeted by the valet driver who opened our car…
