Park City

We were in Park City, Utah for a few days of skiing.  When we left San Diego, it was a beautiful 80 degrees – disturbing since most of January has been in the 80’s with no rain.  The view during takeoff was beautiful.  A video taken with the Flip HD.

Because the Sundance Film Festival was taking place in Park City and the MLK 3-day weekend, a room at Motel 6 would have cost $500 a night.  So we stayed outside of Park City – just a mile from the Deer Valley gondola.  You can see the hotel from the top of the Preservence Bowl.

One of the reasons I like the Deer Valley ski resort – the breakfast at the ski lodge is excellent.  Also with my knees suspect  – knowing that I can rely on them having nice groomers, as well as expert runs is reassuring.  After a previous ski trip to Whistler, my knee looked like a volleyball – my wife said it looked like a butt cheek. They also have comfy couches and numerous fireplaces with real logs.

For Park City dining, I recommend the Blind Dog Grill next to Blind Dog Sushi – Utah is a long ways from the ocean so they needed a suitable substitute.  The food is excellent.

Another good dining choice is Purple Sage on Main Street.

    Your photo looking down the Sultan lift line is killer – almost looks like it’s a snow globe scene. What did you shoot it with?
