Day One

9-11am: Get to Park City Mountain Resort when the lifts open to make the most of your day.  Head straight to the left Jupiter where odds are you will find untouched powder.  Take a couple of runs and enjoy the beauty and snow Jupiter has to offer.

11am-12:30pm: Make your way to Neffland Park.  This park has medium to small hits.  There is even a great half pipe there.  Do not be intimated -- many boarders come to this terrain park to learn the basics.

12:30-1:30pm: Legends Bar at the base of the resort has the best chicken nachos!  It’s listed on the appetizer section of the menu and is the perfect size for my brother and me to share.

1:30-4:00pm: Take a few runs off Silverlode lift and a couple more off McConkey’s lift.  We always like to explore the adventure alleys.  They are marked on the resort map and on the mountain with large steel bug-looking sculptures at the top and bottom of each adventure alley.

Hotel Park City 4:30pm: Check into the Hotel Park City and immediately order Dominos pizza.  Have their Meatzza and Pepperoni feast pizza delivered.  Spend the rest of the evening swimming in Hotel Park City’s outdoor pool (which is heated to nearly 90 degrees), playing chess and sipping hot chocolate in the hotel’s lobby.  For the perfect way to unwind when you get back to your room, relax in the hot tub on the deck, turn on the fire and tell stories.

9:00pm: Retire for the night early to be sure to have enough energy for tomorrow.  Drift off to sleep watching a movie.

Day two

9am: Go back to PCMR for some serious shredding. :)  Make sure to take some runs around King Con lift.

12pm: Get Chili Cheese Fries at the Summit House at the top of Silverlode.

3pm: Take a ride on the Alpine Coaster, which is located near the base of the resort.

Look forward to the next time you can get back to Park City to enjoy the greatest snow on Earth!!!
