Park City Magazine’s weekend picks: Psicobloc and Pistachio

One dilemma faced by Park City residents and visitors is, considering the multitude of options, deciding how to spend each of summer’s sacred weekends. For the uninitiated, it’s not unheard of—even in the midst of the climate change era—for snow storms both in May and before the leaves change color in September, making all those glorious temperate, bug-free nights in between as precious as the silver they used to extract from the hills above Park City’s cozy Main Street.     To give you a sense for how event-packed the warm weather weekends are in these parts, a taste for the happenings scheduled for this coming Friday and Saturday (August 7 and 8) include live performances by Leo Kottke and Kristen Chenoweth, a reception for whimsical painter...

Long Time Coming

12/23/14

Long Time Coming

The fate of the Gambel Oak open space has been a part of the public discourse in Park City since I moved to Utah 18 years ago. My then boyfriend (and now husband) and I often rode the Gambel Oak trails at the early stages of our relationship; it’s easy access from Old Town made it then—as it is now—an idea venue for a short but strenuous work out and a quick dose of nature. I attended my first Park City Council meeting when I heard that the Federal Government was considering letting the Air Force build a hotel on the sylvan landscape there, and over the years have observed with trepidation the myriad of other proposed uses for this precious in-town open space.      Now, however, my worries are over. Thanks to a public-private partnership between...

What I Love About Fall in Park City

What I Love About Fall in Park City

We all know that Park City is a winter paradise for anyone who likes to ski or snowboard, or just enjoy gorgeous winter weather. However, one of my favorite times of year in the area is fall. Why? Oh, there are so many reasons. First, the weather becomes mild, with that crispness in the air. The mornings are getting a little colder, and sometimes I’ll need a jacket on that morning run. Speaking of running, the fall makes hiking in the area spectacular as well because the colors are creating a gorgeous backdrop. There are so many areas where you can go see the fall colors including the Mid-Mountain Trail where you can hike at 8,000 feet between Deer Valley and the Canyons Resort. Along with the popular Mid-Mountain Trail, I love that there’s more than 400 miles...

Shoulder Season Respite

04/03/14

Shoulder Season Respite

If you haven’t gotten out skiing in the last couple of weeks, then you definitely should make the effort. Now. The conditions are better than they’ve been all winter and snow remains in the forecast through the weekend. But then high pressure returns next week, and the resorts begin to close shortly thereafter. Deer Valley and Canyons’ last day is April 13; Park City Mountain Resort calls it on April 20. Before you make plans to head to the desert, however, be sure to put one of the spring’s most anticipated events on your mud season calendar: the Summit Land Conservancy’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour, held at the Jim Santy Auditorium on Thursday, April 24 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. This very cool event features 13 films from the annual...

Apres For All

02/03/14

Apres For All

  I don't often ski first chair to last, but last Saturday at PCMR my husband and two kids and I did just that. The snow gods smiled on Utah after a 10-day dry spell dropping almost a foot of the white stuff on Park City, freshening the slopes and making everyone smile. We skied run after run, from one corner of the mountain to the other, hitting terrain parks, groomers, trees and bumps runs. The weather was blustery and cold, a welcome reprieve after almost two weeks of high pressure.    At the end of the day as we lugged our skis past the bottom of the PayDay lift to the parking lot, I happened to glimpse a sign on the door of the Legacy Lodge for a kids apres ski party and magic show up on the lodge's second floor from 3 to 5 p.m. Since it was just...

Park City's Luxurious Little Austria

Park City's Luxurious Little Austria

Last weekend the stars aligned and my husband and I found ourselves with a rare childless 24 hours. But instead of hitting the Red Box, we decided to treat each other to an early Christmas present and booked dinner and a night’s stay at Deer Valley’s Goldener Hirsch Inn (goldenerhirshinn.com). As soon as I was handed our room key, I knew I was somewhere very different. “We don’t use electronic keycards in any of our rooms,” said the front desk concierge in impeccable English peppered with what I guessed was a thick German accent. Constructed in the early 1990s as a replica of the original Goldener Hirsch Inn in Salzburg, Austria, all 20 of the charming hotel’s rooms are affixed with antique iron closet bar latches on solid wood doors....

Vail Resorts Extends a Hand to Park City

Vail Resorts Extends a Hand to Park City

Good will—along with a little slate-wiping—was the focus of an event hosted by Vail Resorts at the Kimball Art Center Wednesday evening. A cocktail party packed with Park City movers and shakers, partaking in the open bar, heavy appetizers, and ice cream cones began the evening. The main event was the Park City launch of Vail Resorts’ Echo, a sustainability program contributing $6 million and 15,000 employee volunteer hours annually to nonprofit organizations in communities where Vail operates its mountain resorts. Canyons Managing Director Mike Goar handed out checks totaling $500,000 to some of Park City’s most well known and beloved non-profits including Mountain Trails Foundation, People’s Health Clinic, Park City Education Foundation, Park City...

You Win Some, You Lose Some

You Win Some, You Lose Some

“Congratulations, boys, you have just experienced your first Sundance Stinker! And the world premiere of a Sundance Stinker at that!” I whisper this to my 16-year old son and his 16-year old buddy as we do our best to walk, not run, out of a film that constituted 91 minutes of the most strange, boring, confusing time these boys have thus far experienced in their lives. The infamous Sundance stinker. You peruse the Sundance film catalog, you read the descriptions, you envision in your mind what the film will be like, and then … it’s not. It’s not even close. And you start thinking about the wasted $15, and the wasted time, and how contemplating navel lint might have been a better choice of activity for the day. Each year I take my sons and...

Reasons  We Know That Sundance Is Here

Reasons We Know That Sundance Is Here

It’s the only time, all year long, that there are yellow cabs going up and down Parley’s Canyon and driving around town. Like real yellow cabs. From the “big” city down in the valley. The local newspaper, The Park Record, is uber fat with ads and a special real estate section chock full of dream-fulfillment for all of those people from L.A. and New York City who are out this week seeing the gorgeous sunshine, blue skies, white snowy mountains and realizing they want to have a place here. There is pretty much no parking, anywhere. (Take the bus).   Whole Foods is absolutely packed with people wearing Sundance credentials, the staff is constantly whispering and speculating about who’s who, and there’s more than one lady shopping...
