Utah holds a special place in my heart. It's where I know I can find old friends from different paths of life around every corner. In between grabbing coffee with old co-workers and reuniting for a hike with adventure buddies from Michigan – I stay pretty busy when I visit Utah. I posted up about 40 minutes from Park City in Coalville in the back 40 of the Summit County Art House. Friends Kate & Brian – founders of SCAH – are fellow Airstream owners and were excited to offer up their space for me to use for the week.
Isaac & I spent New Year's Eve day using our Mountain Collective passes for the first time at Snowbasin Resort. Utah didn't have a good early season and there wasn't much snow to be seen. Despite being worried about conditions, we still really enjoyed cruising around the resort. Their mountain peaks reminded us of something from the Swiss Alps and the lodges were gorgeous – rustic and modern – totally not something you'd expect from an under-the-radar resort like Snowbasin. We're saving our second day on the Mountain Collective pass for later in the season because we all agreed that we had to ride there on a powder day – the terrain looks so fun!
We had a low-key NYE at Bunny's Club in Coalville (the local's bar where everyone stares at strangers as they walk in). After a quick champagne toast, we scurried back across the street to the Airstream to get up early for New Year's Day session at Snowbird.
