As a major winter storm blows into our fabulous Wasatch Mountains this weekend, we are getting out skis and boards, cleaning and waxing, checking gear and clothing…. oh, and enjoying some day dreams of last year’s fabulous powder with this video, courtesy of Ski Utah and Ride Utah.

The Sydney Morning Herald is a prominent newspaper in Australia. While some North Americans may not know it, Australia is home to large numbers of snow sport enthusiasts. Since their southern hemisphere ski season occurs during our summer, many Aussies love to travel to North America during their own “summer” vacations to try the great snowy slopes here. So we were pleased but not really surprised when the SMH dispatched their #1 travel writer to explore the on and off slope delights at the #1 ski resort in North America, Deer Valley! We were also pleased but not surprised that said travel writer was delighted to lodge in two different properties with Park City Lodging, Inc.

Here is the article singing the praises of Deer Valley and the entire Park City area:

We simply offer some of our experiences of Utah: our perspectives on local events, life in these mountains, skiing and boarding our favorite resorts, and how to get the most out of your Utah vacation. When you’re really lucky we’ll write about all of our favorite restaurants, clubs, off-slope diversions, and maybe even a few secret powder stashes. Ooh, if we’re not careful we may get ourselves in trouble with fellow locals! Warning: any secrets revealed here are for you and you alone…. not to be shared with another soul.
