Robb & Elissa go to Park City, Utah!

Postby robbalvey » Sun Dec 26, 2010 10:30 pm

Because TPR isn't all just theme parks and roller coasters, we like to offer something a bit different every once in a while. This Christmas, we decided to take a 'winter trip' to Park City, Utah, which will include lots of fun in the snow, skiing, snow mobiles, and a lot more!

Keep posted to this thread and our Facebook page as I'll update it as the trip goes on. Here we go....

Image
The view from the plane just before landing at Salt Lake City...holy crap that's awesome!

Image
Looks like we are going to have a very white Christmas!

Image
Translation: "We serve ACErs!"

Image
Join us in Park City...we have a "Party in a Box!!!"

Image
KidTums is all ready for the snow!

Image
"I've never seen this white stuff before!"

Image
Creating a path from the cabin to the road so we can go SLEDDING! Just like on the Matterhorn!

Image
KidTums absolutely loved the snow!!!

Image
Here is the view from our cabin.

Image
The cabins are walking distance to shops, dining and everything you would need!

Image
The cabin was PERFECT! Anyone interested in a TPR ski trip in the future at a place like this?

Image
Look out for yellow snow!!!

Image
"Mommy! You almost made me hit the yellow snow!"And now some videos!





Image
Here's a view of shops next to the cabins.

Image
And the other side....but what is the most important location here?

Image
They have an awesome brew pub here!

Image
Looks good so far...

Image
Even more good stuff...

Image
The most important part...the BEER!

Image
First beer of the trip!

Image
Walking back it started to snow... KidTums trying to catch snowflakes.

Image
Starting to snow pretty good now!

Image
Our little winter resort town in the snow!

Image
Taking the kid out for a sled.

Image
The resort we are staying at is near the Olympic sports park with the ski jump and bobsled.

Image
Oh, Canada...

Image
It may be freezing outside, but the pool is heated!

Image
"I don't want to sit in the sauna! I want to go pizza box sledding!"

Image
Heading back to the cabin...

Image
Time to say goodnight... snowmobiling tomorrow!

Looks like an awesome trip! I've always wanted to go to ski resort like this and try my luck at skiing and other winter activities. I think it is great to see updates other than coasters as this type of stuff looks just as awesome! :b

I didn't know you two were into winter activities. I'll be going to Salt Lake City in March to go skiing, but I'll be visiting the resorts in the Cottonwood Canyons as opposed to Park City. Still, it's nice to see pictures of a place I may one day visit. It sounds like there's a lot of things to do up there, and I hope you have a great time.

Utah looks stunning.

This is really something I need to do sometime in the future! I love being around snow, but I just hate having to travel in it. So, put me at a resort in the middle of lots of snow, and I will be in heaven. (Oh, and the brewery nearby wouldn't hut either! ;) )

Looking forward to the rest!

The Blonde Ale looks very tasty. :p

And yes, the Stevie Y pic is all kinds of failed research awesome.

Nice Report!
It's good to see people enjoying and having fun in the snow and it's weird seeing something other than Theme Parks.
