Heli Yeah!

Accessing Utah’s backcountry via an aerial elevator is the ultimate lift.

The dream: heli-skiing in Alaska.

The reality: sitting around in a drafty lodge, playing games on your phone, and waiting for the conditions to improve or the storm to clear so the choppers can fly.

When you [hope to] heli-ski up north, it’s not uncommon to spend several days (sometimes your entire vacation) doing everything you can to take your mind off the fact that you’re not skiing.

So how do you fulfill the quintessential skier’s dream without taking out a second mortgage and pledging personal sacrifices to Mother Nature’s collection of heli gods? The answer is Utah’s Diamond Peaks Heli-Ski Adventures.

New salt lake city airport

Whether you’re visiting Park City for Spring Break, or planning a vacation after the resorts close, you’re cleared for takeoff at the new SLC International Airport.

Stunning architecture, museum-quality artwork, couture shopping, and five-star dining. These amenities likely conjure thoughts of London, Paris, or New York City — not commercial air travel. But believe it or not, they’re also fitting ways to describe the new Salt Lake City International Airport.

Lauded as a “cathedral to transportation,” Phase I of the country’s newest airport opened in September of 2020 after 25 years of planning and over three years of construction. Topping out at over four million square feet and a $4 billion price tag, it’s

Park City Desserts

Between birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, and Mother’s Day, there are many celebrations that coronavirus has made other plans for. We’ve seen virtual parties spring up everywhere for people to connect with and toast their loved ones online. Thankfully, in Park City there are still more traditional, meaningful ways to be festive and celebrate friends and family during their milestones.

Thanks in part to its altitude of 7,000 feet and above, Park City boasts some of the most majestic landscapes in Utah. This elevation not only delivers stunning views and incredible opportunities for recreation, but it can also create attitude sickness for some visitors. With the 2020 Sundance Film Festival upon us, it’s especially important for those visiting during this time to take precautions and seek treatment if needed. Festival goers, who primarily come from sea level can find it difficult to acclimate. Throw in partying, alcohol consumption, little rest, and not enough hydration, and you can end up having a less than stellar time. Luckily, there are plenty of precautions to take to avoid this elevated ailment and treatments to address it in

Canyons Village at Park City Mountain

There are many new changes at Park City Mountain to be excited about for the 2019-2020 ski season. For many, the Canyons Village side has historically been a challenge to navigate, often requiring ski clad guests to find their way on foot across the terrain or take a lift to their next destination. Park City Mountain is addressing concerns with select upgrades to the Canyons experience. From new eats to new lifts, be on the lookout for these additions to enhance your on-mountain experience this winter.

The New “Over and Out” Chairlift
