If these are the same colorful-looking waterslides I have pasted by on the I-15 to Salt Lake City, then I'll say first hand its location is perfect. The colors are what really make this place stand out and I have always been intrigued about it. Now that you posted this, I now have some more information on a place that is something I'd for sure want to get a closer look at.
Now, to actually go to these wonderful places for once than to past them up. I mean, I still need to visit Lagoon too for crying out loud, and I'm always SO close to that park. I think next time I head up there I'll actually plan a day to stay in the area for once to hit up the local attractions. Sucks being the passenger always picking up someone at the airport there and not getting the opportunity to visit when your actually there...
Ready for another Park City update? We spent the next two days skiing at Park City Mountain Resort. The place is absolutely amazing! They had fantastic ski and snowboarding runs, a great program for kids, and to top it off, the longest Alpine Coaster in the USA!
We spent two days at the resort hanging out. The first day it was a total blizzard! Not even joking! 35MPH winds and snow blowing everywhere! Still though, there was 15 inches of fresh powder! Holy crap that was awesome! The next day was beautiful! Weather was great and the snow conditions were outstanding! Anyway, here's some photos...and VIDEO! Including a complete POV of the Alpine Coaster!
Our first day skiing...as you can see, visibility wasn't great in a blizzard!
Even KidTums gets into the skiing action!While she might only be three years old, she skis pretty good...check her out...
Hey look! As you can see visibility is crap! (sorry for the puns!)
Despite the visibility, the wind, and the snow kicking up everywhere... We're still having fun!
KidTums is doing awesome!
KidTums says "One ski glove thumb way up for Park City!"
It pretty much looked like this the whole day!
KidTums making snow angels!
This is all the mountain you can see today! Wait until you compare this with the next day photos below...
Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse...it started to snow harder!!!
KidTums practices downhill skiing!
As you can see from the park map, this play is huge!
"I had an awesome day! Now I just need to stay warm."
Another day of skiing at Park City!
Conditions are PERFECT today! Look how much more of the mountain you can see. Still tons of fresh powder, good visibility, and not too crowded.
Time for more skiing!
KidTums agrees! More skiing!!!
Hey look! The sun is even breaking through today!
Park City resort is absolutely beautiful. After a fresh snowfall it looks like something out of a movie!
KidTums is practicing the "pizza" which is kid speak for snow plowing.
Fatty patch jacket Robb approves of this photo!
Some facts about Park City...
I wonder if they'd mind if I cut down a tree for Xmas next year?
The Legacy Lodge is a great place to relax, have a beer, and get ready for another run!
Another awesome feature of Park City is the Alpine Coaster! Do you see it ahead on the right?
The Alpine Coaster is open all year long....even in deep snow!
"Hey Jeff Johnson! You could count this as a credit!"
The lift hill was insane! It seemed to go on forever!
The design of the ride getting to the top was amazing. The lift traveled over this bridge with skiers under you, and part of the slides return run is above you!
This helix was insane!
Ready to ride?
At the top of the hill, you get the most important instructions!
Parts of the ride were just nuts. Easily the best alpine coaster I've done to date!
At over 3,800 feet, this is the longest Alpine Coaster in the country!
Did I happen to mention the snow was everywhere around you?
Lots of little hops that produced some good airtime.
Here we go back over the bridge!
Aww...the bummer part of the ride...the end!
Elissa and KidTums loved it!Here is a FULL POV of the Alpine Coaster...keep in mind the lift hill is VERY LONG! Enjoy!
Time to say goodbye to Park City Mountain Resort...was a great couple of days!
Back to TPR's winter headquarters to relax and crash out...
Didn't take KidTums long before she was out!!!
More fun and brew pubs tomorrow!
Hope you enjoyed this update! Don't forget... POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!
