I’ve seen a lot of smiles on my friends’ faces over the past few days, but the one JJ was wearing right around the time the lights went on over Nordic Valley was the biggest one yet. “I’m pretty sure that was the best powder run I’ve had so far this week,” he said as […]
Ezra Jones is taking us to his favorite spot at Snowbasin — a daisy-chained series of three-and-four-turn clearings connected by tight runs through evergreens. There’s no name for this run, and Ezra’s fine with that. Put a name on something and someone can put it on a map. And, like most skiers, Ezra isn’t […]
Picking a resort buddy is easy. You hop on Facebook. You say where you’re headed. You carpool. After that, and particularly on a powder day, all friendships are null and void. Those are the rules.

Jan. 31 will mark one year since I hit the tree. After the surgery, the doctor told me it might take up to a year for my leg to heal. I didn’t believe him then, but here we are, just shy of that mark, and I’m still limping a bit. I’m also skiing and snowboarding, though — just […]
In one of the Top 10 Dumbest Examples of Click Bait, Elle magazine anointed SLC “the new Dubai.” We know…WTF? But under a list of “29 reasons to go shopping,” the magazine editors—who we bet have ever laid spike heel in Utah—included SLC. Here’s what the said: 3. Because Salt Lake is the new Dubai. | […]
