Anticipating a Month In Utah

By Happy Painter Dec 29, 2007

Editors Note: For a lot of skiers a trip to Utah can be the culmination of a season. Generally one week to hit 13 resorts - ah, the angst when it comes down to choosing which resorts you'll ski. Well for one lucky east coast skier, this year his trip will be a month long adventure. Follow along as Chris Becker lands himself in Utah for a month. It doesn't get much better than this.

This is going to be awesome! The anticipation has been building for weeks. Tomorrow I am leaving for Salt Lake City for our annual family ski vacation. The conditions couldn't be better. In the last week it has snowed over 50 inches of world famous Utah powder and more is on the way. I can't wait to hit the slopes and ski some of the best terrain in the country.

I am planning on skiing deep powder lines at Snowbird and Alta with my Uncle, while my 3 year old triplet cousins learn to ski at Alta's Alf Engen Ski School. And, if it ever stops snowing, I plan on driving out to Park City to hit up Jonesy's Terrain Park for some of the sickest park skiing this world has to offer.

Once the family ski week is over I'm going to linger for the rest of January, spinning Tram laps and skiing as much as I can until school starts up again.  I imagine it'll be like the dream I never want to wake up from.  I am not sure what the day-to-day plan is going to be, but with all the options Salt Lake offers, I know it is going to be one of the best month's of my life!
