Take a few spins in one of Vail’s most intimidating Back Bowls.
Terrain » Don’t expect any groomed terrain; Sun Down Bowl is an advanced skier’s stomping ground. While most of the bowl is wide open, the west side serves up fun trees and cliff drops. There are also some gullies separating trails. Warning: They look far shallower than they actually are, so be careful trying to cross them. You might end up bib-deep in powder.
As Park City, Utah redefines itself in a new age, we get a local perspective on how the town has changed for the better.
As I walk along Park City’s Historic Main Street with its high-end boutiques, award-winning eateries and authentic western saloons (in the shadow of two world-class ski resorts, I might add) it’s hard to imagine this bustling ski town as the struggling silver mining community it was just five decades ago. But a small town it was, and that charm has stayed; albeit with a few more things going on than the miners were used to.
