Jaunted at Sundance: Riding at Park City Mountain Resort
We had a chance today to get out to the slopes before the Sundance insanity begins in earnest. And though it was pretty damn cold out there, it was an awesome day for riding. With everyone flitting around town making final preps for the film festival, we were still carving corduroy at 11:30.
PCMR started a new thing this year: The resort's divided its massive amount of terrain into "MountainZones," which are manageable chunks that each give a nice mix of beginner to expert slopes. When you've only got a few hours to spend, this is really helpful; you don't get overwhelmed by the size of the place and can focus on enjoying yourself.
We spent most of our day rocking the Bonanza zone, where the lift lines were non-existent and the terrain didn't kill us. We also ducked into the Summit House restaurant (elevation 9,250 feet!) and had a chance to warm up by the roaring fireplace.
