Park City days 2-3

Day 2: Skied Park City Mountain Resort

I was so disappointed by the over-grooming of PCMR! There were many runs groomed that I remember being left to skiers to mold. The worst part was they ruined my favorite bowl - Blue Slip Bowl - by catting a large swath on skiers left. I'm really still not over it...I can't believe they then had the gall to call it one of their "signature groomed runs" - since when is a groomed bowl a signature run?! If you can't do it, stick to the groomed trails...when I finally skied Blue Slip without morbid fear I was so proud of myself. They should give others that same opportunity to grow rather than just making the slope easier.

We did McConkey's bowl to make up for it:

In the evening I stopped to see my friends JL and LL and their new baby (and new home) in Heber. It also gave me the chance to enjoy the Utah stars on my way home...I still have yet to see stars as brilliant as those in Utah anywhere else.


Day 3: Deer Valley Resort.
More Deer Valley Chili! Yum! A great, wonderful day of sunshine and skiing. DIT and EB made sure I was well worn out by taking me down several bump runs. Which was good; it's the only way you get better, right? Crown Burger for dinner followed by a plane ride back to Seattle.

What a great 3 day getaway!
