Recently, yours truly was featured in an article entitled, “Came to Play, Worked to Stay”. You can find that article along with tons of other Ski Utah related information in this seasons Ski Utah Magazine. If you’d like a copy of your own check out this link http://www.skiutah.com/ski-utah-magazine/ and the kind folks at Ski Utah will gladly send you a copy of your own.
Being featured in the magazine got me thinking. I wonder how many folks out there have had similar experiences to mine. Literally, at that moment a fellow Long Islander, actually a guy who grew up less then 2 miles from me sent me a message on facebook. He and I have a very similar story, only difference is he ended up at Alta and I ended up in Park City. He introduced me to a site that has podcasts hosted by local Alta Skier Johnny B. Johnny’s story was almost identical to mine that it actually inspired me to listen quite a few of them. Check them out, it’s the closest you’ll ever come to being a local with out actually moving here.
Make sure you start with Johnny B’s segment. Some of my other favorites are listed below as well. Enjoy!
