Woodward Park City Isn't Just for Pros

At first glance can seem a bit intimidating. I get it. The jumps and halfpipe can probably be seen without visual aid from the International Space Station. And there’s a stream of videos from Woodward out there on the internet showing shredders of all disciplines effortlessly tossing progressive tricks into the stratosphere. First impressions can be misleading, however. Yes, you will probably be sharing the slopes with a bonafide X-Games medal contender, but Woodward Park City isn’t just for pr...

Park City, Utah, best things to do

There’s nothing worse than being on a ski vacation and having absolutely no interest in skiing. Ok, maybe not nothing worse, especially if you enjoy spending entire days inside a snowy condo with a good book. But should you want to get outside and explore, sometimes it seems ski towns really don’t offer much outside of eating, drinking, and… skiing. This is not the case, however, in Park City, Utah. The home of the famous Sundance Film Festival is also home to some fascinating history, unique...

Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks

My knee didn’t always feel like this. It’s the IT band, I’m told. Only a few years ago I was blissfully unaware of what an IT band was or how it could contribute to a nagging creakiness in my leg. I guess what I’m trying to say is, it doesn’t seem I’m getting any younger despite a steadfast refusal to admit my glory days are in the rearview mirror. Thanks to the virtues of modernity, I’ve found the fountain of skiing youth right in my backyard. No, I haven’t started taking illicit performa...
