Tanya's Daily Scoop CURRENTLY TRAVELING IN: PARK CITY, UTAH
Adventures aren't always fun
Sometimes they are Misadventures...
Hiya everyone!GREETINGS from Park City, Utah!
It all started yesterday when we got stuck on the Park City side of what is now the United States largest resort.
*Vail Resorts has linked two of North America’s greatest ski areas – creating the largest resort in the United States with 7,300 acres of skiable terrain.
Ya see the "new" Quicksilver Gondola between the Canyons side (where we started the day) and the Park City side closes at 3:30p - not such a big deal, except for when you realize that the lifts you need from there to get you back to where you parked and stored your crap in the lockers also closes at 3:30p.
That pretty much leaves you with having to take the shuttle back to the canyons - which you find out is just a regular 'ol city bus!
So after being thoroughly frustrated with the conditions and yelling at a men who nearly crashed into Dominic on our last run, we hopped on the shuttle/bus and I got on the phone with guest services to try and figure out what our options were for retrieving our belongings from the locker on the mountain.
Meanwhile, the bus ride was a real hoot! A real bunch of chatterboxes who *bless their hearts if they could actually think that the conditions were actually good!
(Excuse me while I go laugh my pants off)
*According to Urban Dictionary the definition of "Bless your Heart" - This is a term used by the people of the southern United States particularly near the Gulf of Mexico to express to someone that they are an idiot without saying such harsh words.
Anyhow the poor things mustn't know good conditions (as it was rather SLUSHY on the slopes) and I'm certain just by that statement they have never skied in "the greatest snow on earth" that Utah is known for.
That's it! I had enough - Oh shut-up already. Go suck an egg ya buncha morons!
Man was I glad when those folks got off the bus - I was seriously getting sensory overload! And all I kept thinking was "Thank heavens Cosette isn't with us" - she definitely wouldn't be a very happy camper - and that would've definitely made the situation that much worse..
Is it too much to ask that the snow is perfect and that I have the slopes to myself? Because that is what I want!
Dave coming down a crowded slope. UGH
Regardless of how it may come across, none of this is to say that I didn't have a great day - I actually did - the day was fantastic in-spite of the minor hiccups...
Before heading out to the slopes we had a couple of stops to make...
Sweet stops if you know what I mean -
It's a tradition of ours to stop and grab breakfast at City Cakes Bakery and since the last time that I travelled through Salt Lake City (which was on the trip home from our Cousins Trip to Yellowstone National Park - in April 2015), there is a new French Bakery in town, and I have been drooling over their Instagram postings every since they opened!
So being the bakery lover that I am - I was delighted with the morning errands!!!
If you recall, I did a Foodie Friday on A Vegan Bakery Tour of Toronto and I suppose that you can expect a similar one about vegan bakeries Salt Lake City!
After the slopes we spent some time on Main street and had a lovely dinner, before heading to our resort to finally check in.
It's raining today...too warm for snow this weekend. But I'm okay with that, plenty of things to keep us busy.
I made a safety pact not to ski on rainy days since both times I had pretty bad accidents on the slopes (torn ACL & torn MCL) were on rainy days! And with such chronic ailments even skiing in the slush wears on my poor little knees.
So instead I've got lots of other fun things planned for this raining day and we'll be back on the slopes tomorrow!
I wish you a wonderful Sunday and hope to see you back here at the same time and same place tomorrow, -T
