Ski the 13 Quest Begins
on January 12, 2009
A collective of photographers, writers, PCTV peeps and Ski Utah employees are about to go the distance - to ski all of Utah's 13 resorts in one day.
We're at Cedar Breaks Lodge and Spa. Most of the 10 person crew are fast asleep but I wanted to give you the heads up about our Ski the 13 quest which will begin tomorrow morning at 4:30 am.
Under a nearly full moon we'll drive to the mid mountain maintenance shack here at Brian Head and start off with our first run of the day.
From there we're off to Sundance for an early lift up with Ski Patrol at 8am. Deer Valley is next on the list followed by Park City and The Canyons.
The only double up of the day will occur next when we ride the tram at Snowbird, ski Mineral Basin and then ride up the Baldy Express to jump border into Alta. I'm looking to ski Stonecrusher while others have said High Rustler is on the list.
A quick hit of Solitude and Brighton will next have us on the John Paul Express at Snowbasin, hopefully before the 4pm closing time.
Fortunately for us, Wolf Creek, Power Mountain and then finally Beaver Mountain all have night skiing.
Follow along today as we blog and Facebook updates about the journey to ski all of Utah's 13 resorts in one day.
