RECAPPING A RECORD SEASON

2017 was one for the books. Consistent powder storms flurried down all season, leading to deep bases at the resorts and several days of over-the-head snow for skiers and boarders. All 14 Utah resorts made the most of the winter, and skier visits are up across the state. Park City in particular celebrated the precipitation with locals and visitors alike coming off the slopes with grins and high-fives. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley report the highest number of ticket sales...ever. As the town continues to strategize around responsible growth, we're glad folks from around the world came here to taste our found-nowhere-else lifestyle.

The 2017 Sundance Film Festival starts the 19th, and we’ve got our cameras ready to snap shots of all those famous folk who are mingling outside the places we usually buy coffee. While Sundance brings film, art, and culture, it can also be a bit of a nuisance…especially if you have a car to park. Here are some tips to enjoying the fest and avoiding the hassle.

It’s impossible to drive, park, buy gas, etc… during Sundance. For fun, we recommend renting a fat tire bike at White Pine Touring.

While it is possible to walk between many of the
