I still see SNOW, so let's go!

What I love most about Utah is that there are incredible outdoor activities no matter what the weather conditions are! Within one week, I rode my mountain bike in Park City, ran a Half Marathon in Salt Lake City, hiked a snowy trail with crampons, and skied at both Big Cottonwood Ski Resorts! From sunny to snowy, there is always an outdoor exercise to enjoy! 


The calendar said Spring, but the conditions said Winter for closing weekend at Brighton! We went for the parties, but stayed for the snow! Still seeking fresh lines and weaving through pines, we rode Brighton until the very last chair! Wrapping up the season on the most wintery spring day, we had warming beverages and shared famous nachos at Molly Green's. Ending a great day in a delightful way!    


Soaring around Solitude for closing day was quite a sight! Party animals, onesies, super heroes, and unicorns gathered to send off the season. Winter air still filling the slopes, it didn't seem like it was quite time to shut down the resorts. Making the most of the day, tailgating with games, burgers, and dancing seemed very appropriate. When something is good, you want to make it last as long as possible and soak up every minute of it... so that's what we did!

   

As spring slowly creeps in, get your running shoes and bike out, but don't you dare put your skis away! Winter doesn't stop suddenly around here. More snow is on its way and thankfully Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort and Alta are still open! 

~XOXO, Bring on the SNOW!

A little bird got caught in the wind that brought her to the beautiful mountains of Utah! Alyssa grew up in Ohio and loves being outside and active with anything that gets her heart pumping fast, especially skiing and biking! She vacationed to Utah with her family, and that’s when she discovered the extreme adrenaline that mountain sports provide, and the next level of fitness that can be achieved! She is an Energizer Bunny that lives on the edge cautiously, and challenges herself and others to live life to the fullest! Alyssa loves to travel and is a fireball of positivity while she motivates and encourages others to be healthy and active. Her go, go, go attitude will keep you in the loop with all things fitness as well as the Après scene!
