Another year, another successful family ski trip in the books!
This year the annual ski trip consisted of just my Dad and I and we flew to Park City, Utah to try out a new place. We ended up staying at Three Kings Condominiums, which was an easy walk to the mountain.
I have skied in the Park City area two other times: In 2017, we stayed at The Grand Summit, a gorgeous hotel located in the Canyons Village at Park City Mountain. Last year, in 2021, we stayed at the Solitude Mountain Resort.
I called last year “the best winter of my life” because I skied more than I ever had in one season. While I got nowhere near last year’s impressive nine-day mark, this ski season has been absolutely incredible. Park City brought us gorgeous bluebird 30 degree skies for a whole three days in a row and my second trip to Vermont brought us a mixture of blue and gray skies, but fresh snow that really made me work.
As I often do, I made a ski video for my Western ski trip to quickly chronicle my time out there. Dad and I covered an enormous amount of terrain, as we skied both Park City Mountain and the Canyons, which are two huge mountains that were connected a few years ago.
As always, we ate some good food, so I wanted to quickly detail the food you’ll view in the video. We first ate at the Windy Ridge Cafe, where I chowed on eggplant farm and split some bread pudding with my dad. Night two brought us back to quite possibly our favorite non-local sushi joint, Yuki Yama, which has an impressive menu of unique creations. And finally, the third night, we grabbed some steaks with my dad’s work friend at Grub Steak. I enjoyed a tasty wild rice and mushroom soup and a juice ribeye. I apologize to all the vegetarians I just offended.
As always, thanks to anyone who has stuck around on this post long enough to get to this point. I hope you enjoy my 2022 ski trip video!
