BOBSLEDS!

You know Kai. Earlier this year he surfed Costa Rice and scuba-ed Bermuda. All this week, he'll be hitting the fresh snow on some Utah slopes and bragging about it, just in time for ski & snowboard season.

Duh, the skiing and snowboarding around the Park City area is absolutely world class. They call it the greatest snow on earth for a reason, and if you're looking for challenging, aggressive terrain, in bounds or in the back country, Utah doesn't disappoint in the least.
