Spring In Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
May 24, 2017

Spring is here and even with our snow capped mountains temperatures are reaching the 70s during the day. With Spring means that each Wednesday, Canyons Village at Park City will once again host Park City's Farmers Market in the Cabriolet parking lot. Stop by for fresh produce, fresh baked bread and arts and crafts from local vendors. Canyons Village Cabriolet Lot 1815 Canyons Resort Drive. This also means that the The Last Friday Gallery Stroll is coming up giving locals and Park City visitors alike the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments while exploring Park City’s exciting art scene. During the Last Friday Gallery Stroll—6:00–9:00 p.m. on the last Friday of each month—members of the Park City Gallery Association offer a unique monthly showcase highlighting artists, special exhibits and art events.

Park City is back in the news making the top ten for America's Greatest Places You Absolutely Have to Visit During Spring By Jay Gentile. Park City, Utah - Spring shoulder-season deals make this time of year the cheapest to visit Utah's most well-known resort town. While it has a reputation for celebrity sightings during Sundance, in spring it's just another laid-back mountain town up for pretty much anything. Strolling or riding the free trolley down its picturesque Main St is a must, and there is perhaps no finer activity than basking in the spring sun over a few pints of craft beer on the rooftop of local hangout No Name Saloon. Nearby Salt Lake City is one of the most underrated (and cheap) destinations in America, while the surrounding Wasatch Mountains are as good a place as any to lose yourself in nature.

National Geographic also has Park City in their top picks for America’s 20 Best Mountain Bike Towns - The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) designates destinations as “ride centers” when they offer something for every rider, from backcountry epics to beginner-friendly singletrack. Of the 37 in the world, the first gold-level status was awarded to Park City. Beyond the sheer quantity of trails—about 400 miles of singletrack—Park City’s active and productive bike community has helped link them in a highly functional, user-friendly network.

Park City’s trail options include long, flat cruises, intermediate rolling terrain, and alpine singletrack with challenging climbs and thrilling descents. There are even lengthy tours like Mid-Mountain and Wasatch Crest. Plus, Deer Valley, Canyons Resort, and Park City Mountain Resort (now one property) all offer lift-assisted riding, which makes access to the higher alpine trails even easier. Gravity aficionados flock to Canyons Bike Park for its freeride trails (the lifts also access 20 miles of cross-country trails).

Park City even joins the most recent edition of VOGUE in Ed Droste Trades Sunny LA for 2 Mountain Retreats - Simon and I headed up to Park City, Utah to stay at the masterful Washington School House Hotel. As luck would have it, we were upgraded to the top-floor penthouse. Our brains essentially exploded upon arrival and learning that an ambassador for the city had created a killer itinerary for us, including top-notch food at High West Distillery and endless days of skiing both at Park City Mountain (it has recently been overhauled and is now massive) and the more old school Deer Valley.

Have a great week - Ramon and The Gomez Team

Spring Skiing In Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 22, 2017

RamonSpring Skiing is here and we are making the most of our time on the mountain. After hitting the slopes I read a great article yesterday I wanted to share by Jordi Lippe-McGraw for the Huffington Post - 5 Things Every East Coast Skier Should Know About West Coast Skiing. Jordi said "Our go-to spot was Killington, Vermont, and I have very fond memories of hitting the slopes with my dad, enjoying family meals by the fire, and taking a dip in the hot tub.But, aside the occasional side trip to upstate New York or Connecticut, this was the only skiing I ever knew. That was until I took my first West Coast ski trip to Park City, Utah. After hearing about the record snow fall the area got this year (and the lack of snow New York got), I decided to book a quick three-day getaway to the famous resort area. My assumptions were it would be pretty much the same as east coast skiing, so I should know what to expect. Right? Boy, was I wrong. Here are five things every east coast skier should know about west coast skiing: The Snow Is Scientifically Proven To Be The Best, Gourmet Meals Are The Norm At Ski Lodges, the Hotel Rooms Are Basically Luxury Homes, It’s Not Miserably Cold On The Slopes and You Can Ski All Day Without Doing The Same Trail Twice."
