The Road to Sochi Goes through Park City Utah
YOU GUYS. I went to Olympic Park last weekend for Olympic Qualifiers in the Ski Jump and it was SO EXHILARATING. These people will be competing for medals and a lifetime legacy on the slopes in Russia next month.
You can’t help but be thrilled to see them prepare, and all the hard work comes to a head soon! The Olympics are right around the corner. You’ve got another chance to witness history - at the Visa FIS Freestyle Invitational at Deer Valley.
As a reminder this article from last year details even more reasons to show up. This year the concert is Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Another must see must do. Coming up from the valley to Park City can be for more than just skiing. Play and day and bring a change of clothes for a night out. Better yet, stay up in the mountains. Treat yourself. Start your year out right!
I’ve been every year I’ve lived in Utah now and I know this will be even more wonderful of a memory for you to have in your 2014 scrapbook. See you there!
