This is the Disney World of Skiing & Snowboarding, in Utah that is. It is located at 1345 Lowell Avenue in Park City, Utah.
As the sun tries to push it’s rays through the cloud cover, I caught myself starring far beyond the massive mountain peaks. With over 300 inches of snow pack, I just found paradise! Good good morning to the powder & say hello to my snowboard.
Some know that traveling tends to be hard on the body, however, Salt Lake City Airport is a quick 40 minutes from the most prestigious skiing and snowboarding mountains in the US. With over 3 mountains within 5 minutes of one another, who would not want to attempt the this thrill seeking opportunity. We did.
March 24th, 2011 – Awake at 7:30am, a little jet lag, and a nice cup of coffee. Peaking out the blinds I see myself surrounded by massive mountain peaks covered in a beautiful snow-pack. At 10:00 we take off for the mountain, a very quick 10 minute drive. The skiers & boarders getting ready to test the fresh snow, I headed in to get a board rental.
Out of the car, up a couple flights of stairs, and walla, it was a miniature city. It felt just like Disney World for those of you who have experienced that. 100’s of small mom and pop retail shops. Each and everyone having it’s own unique twist. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to shop, I was just looking for Park City Sport.
After passing about 20 shops, I spotted my destination about 20 yards away. Passing by several 100 die hard snowmen & women, I arrived. As I opened the doors to Park City Sport, it was a perfect chaos. It was full of rental seekers, and full of service.
The retail staff had this process down as if it were a production chain. Taking no less than 10 minutes to get in, fitted, payment made, and out the door. It was what I would call, ideal. The best part is the price. With a 20% coupon offered on their own site, a $1.00/day insurance fee, it ended up costing me $23.00 per day with tax. It was cheaper than checking baggage in the darn airport. Plus it was a very simple process. Visit this shop for snowboard rentals, snowboard tuning, downhill ski rentals, demo board rentals, and everything in between!
Out the door in 10 minutes, we fastened our lift ticket on and headed up to the first lift. Up, up and away.
20 or so runs later, I found my legs wobbling like the sea. I had nothing left. As we headed down the last slope, the fresh powder had turned to a perfect slush. Carving felt like a knife going through warm butter. My board gripping on any toe side or back side motion. It was quite honestly, the best snow I have ever experienced. With about 200 yards left, I followed the experienced Park City riders. All of the sudden we were snowboarding over a bridge into downtown Park City It was a very well thought out design.
With even more retail shops in front of us, we decided to grab a quick pitcher of beer to help ease the pain brought on by the day. This was a weird experience as well. You must purchase food when ordering and alcoholic beverage in the State of Utah. No ifs, ans, or buts about it. You want booze, your must order food. I guess again, this is a well thought out process. Sipping down the last gulp of beer, we strapped our skis & boards on and headed back to the main resort. Home we go.
All I can say is thank you Park City, I thought the western mountain range had the snow of a lifetime, but now I must say, you are the Spring treasure to anyone seeking a wonderful experience. Day 2 here we come!
We connected directly with Mount Everest, a specialty ski & snowboard shop located at 318 3rd Ave in Westwood, NJ. They had nothing but extreme things to say about their shop. Are you an accessory man that still can’t get the airdog title down? They might have some gear that you still need!

With the staff members loving the snow, they take a great deal of interest in everyone that walks through our doors.
The store shines when Woodcliff & Lake Tappan start to freeze…As a matter of fact, that is a great indicator to take your gear out of the closet, blow the dust off and get a fresh coat of wax that shines down the bottom of your skis & snowboard.
