Lisa's Trip Diary Day Three

Posted by Lisa on April 9, 2011

Right now, I am hoping I can fit into my ski pants tomorrow.  We just got home from an amazing dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House located down the street from our condo at Hotel Park City.
 
Everything there tastes so good. We had calamari, seared ahi tuna, fresh salad, petite filet, New York strip steak, boysenberry venison (unbelieeevable!), scalloped and sweet potatoes, asparagus.  We finished off strong with a devil's food cake filled with chocolate ganache, and a caramelized banana cream pie.  The atmosphere was cozy and romantic, the food was outstanding and the service ideal.  I hope all the calories I burn snowboarding off-set all the calories I am eating.

We are staying at a fabulous ski in/ski out condo called Silver Star with many great amenities which we are taking full advantage of. It has a full size gourmet kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace, grill, hot tub on our balcony, and another one next to a delightfully warm swimming pool.  Silver Star offers complimentary shuttle service for jaunts around Park City.  This makes it easy to visit Main street and not have to worry about finding parking.  My favorite feature is its proximity to the Silver Star ski lift at Park City Mountain Resort.  The lift is literally just steps away from the door of our condo.  This is beyond convenient.  The general manager, Steve Perkins, has bent over backwards to make sure our needs are met.

The weather is also totally on board for making this vacation perfect by snowing at night and letting the sun shine during the day.  Park City Mountain Resort recorded 5 inches of new snow last night.  My son, Isaac, and I made first tracks this morning.

Spring skiing means the slopes are much less crowded so it is easier to find untouched powder throughout the day. The conditions are so excellent today that we boarded longer than we originally planned. The snow was SO good in fact that my husband, Mike, said today was the best boarding day in his memory.
 
Another major draw to spring skiing is the balmy weather and a plethora of sunshine. Late this afternoon, the kids and I spent several hours relaxing at the heated pool. Seriously, there is nothing more ideal than spending the morning and early afternoon carving in fresh powder snow and finishing the day off sunning out by the pool.
 
We have already accomplished several things on our vacation to do list:

freestyle snowboard lessons
snowboarding in the terrain park
swimming/hot tubbing
shopping at the outlets
eating great food
Ski with Mary

Things on our list that we still want to do:

alpine coaster
historic mountain tour
walk down Main Street
Snowmama meet up on Friday
ride the Town lift to downtown historic Park City

We are here for two more days and the forecast calls for at least another foot of snow!  Life is good.
