Well another storm has hit us over this Christmas vacation. It was a great day of skiing and very cold, which actually makes for great powder. We received over 30” of snow out of the storm this week. I knew today was going to be the best day of skiing. Yesterday the wind speeds were
Mariposa, located in Silver Lake Lodge is, hands-down, my favorite fine dining experience in Utah. And believe me, I love fine dining, so I’m someone whose opinion you’d be wise to trust. Just ask Ski Uncle, who is one of those guys who likes to try to customize a menu, frequently asking a server to
Susan Anderson, Deer Valleys Snow Safety Supervisor doing what all ski patrollers love most, SKI POWDER ! The storm total exceeded 30 inches! Hope you were able to make some turns over the last couple days!
You know a dining experience has been a decadent success when your seven-year old is ranking his top SEVEN desserts from the evening on the drive home from the meal. Yup, we conquered the Seafood Buffet. We came, we saw, we ate. Everything. Big Guy made a point of thanking me for suggesting he try

Now that last week’s major storm is over and another one has just begun, I thought I would catch you up on my last week with all the powder skiing since there wasn’t much time to blog during the 70” of new snow!! It all began on Wednesday while skiing with my brother. He doesn’t
For weeks, Little Guy, age 3, has been greeting us each morning with a query: “Is it Christmas?” then bursting into a medley of seasonally appropriate tunes. Which is adorable, and also hilarious. He hasn’t quite grasped the concept that we don’t celebrate the holiday, per se. Chinese food? A movie? Skiing and gathering with
On my first (and only) ski vacation to Utah, we came with a large group of friends. It was pre-kids, and definitely a Go-Big-or-Go-Home kind of week. If the slopes were lacking the fresh stuff that March week, we barely noticed. So dazzled were we by the terrain, the fluffy nature of Utah snow, and
