A New Year in Utah

I am grateful I was able to spend New Year's with my family in Deer Valley, Utah this year. It was a peaceful and stunning place to reflect on the past year and ring in the new one. After a restless 2017, it was the perfect reset for me. We skied everyday, ate lots of delicious food, and gathered around our fire place in the evenings. It was a terrific blend of fun, exhaustion and relaxation!

Below you will find images from the trip we savored. Please enjoy!

Adventure Day at Alta

On day three of skiing, we woke up early, packed in the car and drove through Little Cottonwood Canyon to get to my brother's favorite ski area closer to Salt Lake City called Alta. The weather was perfect, the slopes were not crowded, and the terrain were more advanced then the cruiser blues of resort world. I do not have anything against cruiser blues BUT I will say that skiing here was exciting. After warming up, we adventured across the mountain side to runs with decent difficulty and good snow. Though I took a spill down the run, the traversing was an adventure worth taking in itself.

We skied all day and packed up as the sun was setting down in the valley (in the last image you can see the smog that covers SLC and creates a very unique sunset!).

Ski skip day: Park City Main Street

After a tumble down a decent hill the day before, I was interested in having a very chill day. We skied till noon and happily trotted down the mountain to the charming cafe, Harvest, just off Main Street. I would recommend everything on their menu especially their buddha bowl and the avocado toast (wow... the two most millennial things I know but, trust me!) As well, the Golden Calf latte is as interesting and tasty as it sounds. 

We spent the rest of the day walking in and out of shops and we didn't regret the ski ditch one bit.
