Nancy Anderson

The Roundhouse at Solitude Mountain ResortEven though Nancy Anderson lived most of her life about an hour’s drive from Lake Tahoe in Northern California, she never learned to ski.  After turning 50, Nancy decided it was now or never. She and her husband up and moved to Park City.

They had ulterior motives – Park City, Utah is a draw for their adult children and grandkids to visit. The strategy worked and their spare room is booked months ahead by family and friends.

Besides working as a financial planner in a wealth management firm in downtown Salt Lake City, Nancy pens a popular personal finance blog on Forbes.com.  Her work has been syndicated on Yahoo! Finance, The Wall Street Journal Blog, MSN Money, and the CNBC.

Nancy is excited about learning to ski and eventually skiing the whole mountain. Is there powder in her future? She hopes so. She and her husband love exploring Park City and activities such as concert going, hiking, and throwing the ball (over and over again) to Ginger, their yellow Lab.

    I am envious that Nancy has the spunk to explore her desires and sets no boulders for herself. I wish I could do that.

    We are, once again, coming to Deer Valley. We will arrive evening of 2/20, leaving morning of 2/25. Hopefully we will be skiing at least 3 of the 4 days. Ron just got new skis that he is anxious to try out. We skiied Mammoth Mountain in California
    for a week in January, but we are anxious to come back to Deer Valley. Hope to see you at some point, maybe ski, lunch, dinner??????

    Hope all is well and we are looking forward to some beautiful days,

    El DeSimoni
