Report from November 17, 2023
Today I rode a chairlift for the first time in 6 weeks.
It was glorious…
I’ve been hiking like a deranged lunatic the past 6 weeks ticking off days for my “300” project.
Today was day #285.
I showed up at Park City today at 10am not knowing anything about what they’d have open.
They had a DJ playing at the bottom and everyone was smiling.
I rode up the First Time chair with a kid named Joseph who told me about his buddy who just broke his collarbone on his first run of the first day of the season…
Such a bummer…
I also saw someone getting drug off the hill in a ski patrol toboggan.
Be careful out there people…
From First Time I jumped onto Pay Day and rode the flying sofa up.
I didn’t know what to expect so I went with the flow.
The run started off as I expected:
Then, it dropped off pretty good into a long blue square run that I had a hoot on!
I skied 5 laps with a cool high school kid named Aiden then called it quits to record a podcast with badass skier and mindfulness enthusiast, Sophie Schwartz.
All 5 laps were fun and I was shocked at just how much snow Park City has made out of thin air.
There’s plenty of snow on the runs and no snow anywhere else.
Today was a great experience for me.
I needed the rest of chairlifts.
I’ll do it again tomorrow before hiking again on Sunday for some of that sweet sweet Utah pow that’s in the forecast.
