Park City was one of the centers for the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics. It remains a training facility, as well as a visitor center with a museum celebrating those Olympics.
In addition there is a section of the museum celebrating skiing in general, and the life of local legend Alf Engen.
The museum has numerous artifacts from the 2002 games, including art pieces from the opening ceremony as well as other memorabilia.
A collection of the snowboards, ski’s, jerseys and other items used in competition.
A niece graduating from high school in Colorado was a perfect excuse for a road trip. After a fairly long Frontier Airlines flight to Denver, we took off for the mountains,
Arapahoe Basin to be exact.
After passing through town we continued west on I-70.
Eventually we arrived at A-Basin, got our passes and rentals, and headed up the mountain.
The view at the very top was initially obscured by clouds, but after a brief drop down the view was spectacular. What a great day that was.
Another annual tradition was a ski/snowboard day at Seven Springs Ski Resort in Western Pennsylvania each year around Christmas. This year it was a beautiful sunny day, providing great backdrops for photos.
