Jen's Trip Diary Day 125: Just kidding, but winter is getting a little long!

Posted by Jen on April 20, 2011

While skiing at Park City Mountain Resort this past weekend, I was eavesdropping.  I was actually super sick of my son Declan’s whining about needing a new jacket. Boy can that kid spend $$$!

So instead of listening to my family, I focused my attention on a much more interesting group-- young, hip and totally cool snowboarding  kids.  Could they BE any cuter?  Anyway, they were heading in for lunch and mentioned they didn’t want to leave their boards by the Payday lift.  

Snowboard guy: “Dude, did you know there are cameras over there?”

Snowboard girl: “Right on, that’s dupa.  Let’s hoof them down there.”

Snowboard guy: “Dag yo.”

Background dialogue/music is Declan saying/whining/almost singing, “I really, really, really, really, really, need a new Spyder jacket.  Mom?  Mom?  Mom?  Can we go look at a new jacket?  Do you have any money?  I really, really, really, really, really need a Spyder jacket.”  Big finish with jazz hands.

(Think of this as a mini-opera, a very mini-opera!)

So almost in a trance I followed those cute kids to the area just across from the ticket sales window and lo and behold, they were right.  That area is all under surveillance.  I like to believe equipment is safe all over the mountain but it is a good idea to protect your skis or boards.  These things aren’t cheap, you know.

So I learned something new.  It’s a great idea to walk a few extra yards to protect your investment.  Check out the cameras here:

Not only are they surveillance but they give you a great feel for what’s happening on the mountain.  You can control them for 60 second intervals, it’s really fun!

And NO, Declan did NOT get a new jacket.  I’m waiting for the sales!  And YES,  I will always listen to the youth of our country, those kids know stuff!
