Be A Kid
The Alpine Coaster is an elevated course that feels a bit like a luge. Running on a track that winds past hairpin curves at speeds of more than 30 miles per hour, it sounded like a good idea at the time. Needless to say, more than one of us was screaming like a little girl as we barreled down the mountain
On our final day on Park City Mountain, we made the most of the vast terrain by parking in the Canyons’ base lot where spots are more plentiful than in town and then taking the bus to the Park City base. From there, we made our way back toward the Canyons as the day progressed, spending more time on the Canyons side of the mountain and finishing conveniently at our car. Admittedly, the comfort of having a rental car in Utah came in handy with all the traveling.
Take A Drive
PowMow is a 90-minute drive from Salt Lake City, as much as twice the distance of some other spots, but worth the trip. Why? Not only is it one of the largest, softest and snowiest hills in the area, it’s also fairly cheap.
The only drawbacks to our day on the powder were our sore muscles and achy quads. We all had our remedies. I took a hot bath with Epsom salts, Derek used Tiger Balm, Mike popped several ibuprofen and Jim and Ethan opted for stretching exercises.
