Our friends, Meghan Tidwell and Joy Plemmons, just returned from a girls' trip on Sunday and we were fortunate to get a fresh account of their trip:
Park City is a skiers paradise. We recently went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday , and found that it is pretty darn good for a girl’s getaway as well!
After much deliberation, our group chose to ski at Deer Valley, site of many of the 2002 Winter Olympic freestyle skiing events and one of the few resorts in the US that is for skiers only (no boarders allowed). It was the perfect mountain for our varying range of abilities. The 3 ft. of powder we got over the three days made for some AMAZING conditions…. and, thanks to the Sundance Film Festival, lift lines were non-existent. While resting our VERY TIRED legs at lunch, we ate at the Silver Lake Lodge (mid-mountain). The food was delicious, but their Vegetable Pizza was a stand out!! Whole wheat crust with fresh grilled veggies provided us with the much needed energy without all the cheese to slow you down. Also, not to be missed, is the hot cocoa KIOSK at Silver Lake Lodge. It was the BEST cocoa we have ever tasted….served with marshmallows and whip cream.
