U.S. Freeskiing and Snowboarding Grand Prix

The end of February is always host to one of our favorite work events that we enjoy taking our kids to and takes place in what we like to consider our current neck of the woods for those of you who are joining us with Tuesday's Traveler column from other areas we are talking about Park City; Utah and the Sprint US Freeskiing and Snowboarding Grand Prix at PCMR aka
Park City Mountain Resort 


"I Ride Park City" will have full coverage of the event for those of you who can't make it up to the slopes and still want to watch our astounding Olympic Champions and Professional Ski and Snowboard Athletes in action; they will be streaming Live Online at

Not only are these athlete's exceedingly talented; all the one's that we have meet and had a chance to get to know personally are immensely humble, down to earth, fun, phenomenal people who also like to give back when they can!!! We've had quite a few of them who have joined us for the Salt Lake City Cure Search Walk the last two years; rain or shine they came either way to show their support for the cause and the extraordinary children fighting cancer!!!

 It was immensely heartwarming to have all the athlete's who showed up for the 2014 Cure Search Walk this past September when we had torrential rain coming down on us for a good part of the morning; yet they all still came to the walk and stayed all the way through until the event was over and even got up on stage and danced until the sun started shining

The Park City Grand Prix is one of our family's favorite winter events to go to; especially for the kids since they also get to climb, slide, and play on the snow filled hill and we get to fit in some more fun family ski and snow playtime together 

If you decide to go for a slide down the hill realize you do so at your own risk; use your own good judgement and take caution around others since you can get going pretty fast ; )

My crazy little dude decided to scare the pants off his Mom by sliding head first the last time we were there before we headed down to the free concert. He of course was fine and has always been an athletic thrill seeker like his Dad and it's taken years for me to try to get used to it but I love them and their zest for life and fun very much; regardless I would recommend and prefer sliding on your bum instead of "skeleton style" as we call it. ; ) Finals are during the day for 2015 so it will be a little bit warmer for us spectators but you'll still want to 
bundle up really good in your snow gear  

If you can't make it to the U.S. Grand Prix to meet some of our
Olympic Gold Medalist from Sochi 
and still wanted a chance to this year you are in luck since PCMR will be doing another 
Sunday April 6th, 2015
From 11am-12pm

Wishing everyone a fun and wonderful winter!!!
