  • The Beginner’s Guide to Fighting in the Wasatch

    Andrew McLean
    21 Mar 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Welcome to the Wasatch.  Now pick a side – pave it or preserve it. There’s a lot to be said for the Wasatch Mountains, especially from a skiing/boarding standpoint.  They are very riding friendly, have easy access, are close to a major metropolitan city, close to an airport, have seven major ski resorts and also have an abundance of light, deep snow. Technically, the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest entails 2.48 million acres of land, but much of that is lower elevation, brushy or lacks winter road access, which makes it undesirable for skiing.  Conversely, upper elevation…

    I had my first serious springtime glomming session over the weekend, which prompted this 3:36 minute video on how I remedy this wretched malady while on a tour. I wrote a post about glomming almost a year ago to the week and it is one of those things where doing a half-assed repair job usually just creates more anger and frustration because you’ll end up stopping to fix it multiple times instead of just once.  Sometimes the glopping goes away by itself, but when it doesn’t, I stop and make a meal (or at least a snack) out of fixing it. Anti glop tools of the trade – a chunk…

  • Wasatch Backcountry Conditions – March 9

    11 Mar 2014 | 10:52 am
    Although the Wasatch is still draggin’ ass on snow depth, skiing in the upper elevation backcountry areas has been pretty good. Last weekend we had a slight 2-4″ graupel refresher on top of a supportable crust, which made for some fun, fast powder skiing. I’ve seen a few photos of people getting after some of the bigger lines, but having skied them in the past during big or normal snow years, things like the East Face of Twin still seem a bit thin, punchy and rocky to me. They are fun in any condition, but even more fun when they’re filled in. Still,  the conditions…

So I took a few hours the day before to check the snow conditions first hand. The quickest way to cover some ground was to take skis of course so I had a quick tour above the lift system here to see the situation. Looking over the lake it’s certainly spring!

Last time I skied to Feutersoey and caught the bus but this time I decided to do a circular route from there.

    Park City Mountain Resort

  • Announcing $7,000 in Grants to Local Eco-Friendly Initiatives

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:30 am
    In December we put out a call to the Park City community, looking for ideas to help protect our local "playgrounds" - the mountains we ski and hike, the trails we ride, and the town we call home. We, along with our sister POWDR Corp resorts, pledged to provide seed money to get the most promising ideas off the ground. Over the next several months we fielded many submissions, more than we expected to receive, and today - Earth Day - we get to reveal our winners. One winning project is a local pilot composting initiative that collects vegetative scraps from all three resorts in Park City and…

  • Finding Park City's Top Tapster with the Inaugural Bartenders' Cup

    3 Apr 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Almost since Park City was founded (1870, BTW), there's been a place in town to get an adult beverage. And during that entire time, debate has raged about who the supreme mixologist of this mountain town is. In order to decide once and for all (or at least until next spring), we're hosting the inaugural Miller Lite PCMR Bartenders' Cup: an intense crucible that will finally determine Park City's almighty team of alewifes and give their bar or restaurant bragging rights for a year - as well as a sweet trophy. It's happening Tuesday, April 8 and if you work at a bar or restaurant in Park City,…

  • Getting Sporty with the UPS Ski System in St Moritz

    Robert Stewart
    7 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Getting to St Moritz is somewhat of an epic journey – and so it should be. It’s almost 150 years since the first tourists started to come to this part of Switzerland and it was the British Victorians, with their lust for exploration that first discovered the potential of this wide, high altitude valley known as the Engadine, quietly tucked away in the south east corner of the country. Today, the town of St Moritz is well known for its glitz and glamour, the five star hotels, the designer boutiques and the gourmet restaurants that are abundant and concentrated in such a small area. But…

    Whistler Festival Guide – Music, Writing and the Great Outdoors article first appeared on the Coda Travel website. Whistler is often voted the best ski resort in North America and it’s one of our customers’ favourites. We love the huge amount of terrain (both in area and a whole mile of vertical) that’s accessible to all levels of skiers or snowboarders, from widely spaced tree runs down from 7th Heaven to the huge number of open bowls on Whistler to the 7km thigh-burning Peak to Creek run. Plus there are now incredible views of the deep Fitzsimmons Creek, that divides Whistler…
  • 14, 14, 14 in Korea

    Robert Stewart
    10 Mar 2014 | 1:07 pm
    Where did it all begin? I often ask myself that question. If I really think about it, it probably began as a young boy, riding my first surfboard. My mates might think the recently acquired snowboard akin to another 40-something-year-old’s red sports car. It’s not that. I am saving something spectacular for that mid-life crisis. It’s just that I’ve always been a board man, hooked on the sensation, gliding at speed at the mercy of nature. And now I find myself in front of my computer, writing about a mad snowboarding trip through South Korea. If you had tried to tell the young…

    Jodie Perkins, Product Manager for Austria, gives us her run down of the best items to take with you when heading out on a hike!    We could say that the best accessory you could take with you hiking would be the person you have chosen to travel abroad with, but that may be a bit ‘mushy’, so let’s stick with the facts. Accessories in the context of hiking enhances the experience, you could enjoy a hiking adventure happily without these items, but to have them makes you look the ‘Bees-Knees’ in a mountain environment and makes you feel prepared to achieve the challenge you’ve…

    Every year Lainio Snow Village is built out of thousands of tones of snow and ice. They create it in a fairly small amount of time for the vast scale of rooms and space it takes up. This year the creation took around 3 weeks to create and contains 28 rooms, an ice dome, the ice restaurant which seats up to 120 people, and not forgetting the awe inspiring ice chapel where many British people get married throughout the winter season.
