My name is Josh and…
I came to Utah in 2001 for many of the same reasons you have. The exhilarating powder skiing, incredible vistas, and an opportunity to escape from the world’s breakneck pace. That’s how life feels when you are on the mountain; as if everything else is outside and you are experiencing something very different and very special.
Many years later I keep coming back to the mountains of Utah, like an old prospector always digging for another payday. And just like that old digger I have staked my claim in certain parts of the Wasatch Mountains, while powder fever keeps me looking for new chances at glory. That fever has led me over the same path that the Utah Ski Interconnect Adventure Tour takes, from the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon to the stunning Deer Valley Resort.
Super light Utah powder? Check. Over 2,000 acres of skiable terrain? Check. Meals that make you want to bag everyday life to become a full time foodie? Well, you get the idea. Deep snow, fast turns, and après activities with old and new friends alike make Deer Valley the perfect place to hang my helmet in 2012-13. It is, as they say, a chance to put on our goggles and see the big picture.
From world-class service to World Cup skiing I will share my experiences at SKI Magazine’s eight times ranked #1 ski resort, meeting the people who make it happen and reveling in the passion they share for their work.
If there is something you want to see, eat, or ski head to the comment section and let me know! In the meantime I will be doing the snow dance, probably in my ski boots, definitely like no one is watching.
