Park City, Utah | Ski 2012 Part Deux

We went to Park City with our great friends Ivy and Sven. We stayed at this beautiful and conveniently located hotel called the Caledonian in a condo on the top floor with a perfect view of the city. Our place was so warm and cozy with a jacuzzi outside on the patio! We loved walking up and down the main strip, shopping and enjoying a nice walk after breakfast and dinner! Every meal here was great! Great food and great company! The first night we ate at Butchers Chop House, which was right at the hotel. We walked around the city and actually enjoyed some sushi 3 hours later at Yuki Arashi!

We were so lucky because it snowed hard all day the second day, for Ivy’s Birthday!!

Adam and I skiied the 2nd, 3rd and 4th days we were there.  Our hotel literally had a lift right out the back door! We rented our skiis right across the street from the hotel and jumped on a lift to the top of the mountain! We met Ivy and Sven at the bottom every day for a late lunch. We would text them on our last run to meet us at the bottom and they would leave the room and watch us ski down to meet them. We would meet for a burger and beer at this place called The Bridge, which was at the bottom of the mountain, also right outside of our hotel (barely 2 mins walking from our 4th floor condo). I could not believe how convenient “ski in ski out” was! On the first day it snowed, we skied in knee high powder, it was amazing!! It was incredible to float over!  It was a little challenging for me because of how deep and ungroomed it was on the slopes.  On the second day of skiing, the sloped were groomed and I was getting better as Adam was providing me with helpful tips. On the third day of skiing, Adam I were skiing side by side, weaving in and out of each others tracks, laughing, and flying down the mountain!! We had so much fun!! After each day of skiing, we enjoyed the jacuzzi outside with the great view.

For Ivy’s Birthday, we went out to Mariposa. This meal was unforgettable. The service, the detail, the food… everything was perfect and everyone was blown away by this experience! The snowball for desert was to die for! Happy Birthday IVY!

Valentines Day was two days later and we all went to Prime Steakhouse, which was another delicious meal. The filet was a juicy softball that melted in our mouths. It was a wonderful dinner!

On the last daywe enjoyed breakfast at the  St. Regis Hotel. We took the Funicular up to the top and looked at  Deer Valley Resort while we ate. Another great meal.

The trip was amazing, Park City was beautiful, great shopping, awesome skiing, and fun times!

Family Engagement Party at Samantha and Ian’s Pad

Special thanks to Samantha and Ian for hosting a great party for us. And to Wendy for adding her touch and helping out, Bob too! Samantha’s house looked awesome and was filled with flowers and candles and some great food. Wendy presented Kelly with a Toby Weston / JoJo Scott hand bag filled with wedding magazines. Mom and Dad rocked some Champagne with us in a great toast! Hilary and Gavin gave us a great card and we were also blessed to have my best mate Alan and his new wife Maureen show up to the gig. Mother Mary, Rockey and Kelly’s dad were missing but with us in spirit; we look forward to seeing them on Thanksgiving.

Wine Country and San Francisco

Great trip to Napa, Sonoma, and San Francisco with Ian and Samantha.

On the first day, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Cook in St. Helena, stopped at Arns Winery to visit our friends/wine makers Sandi and John, and stayed at the Rustic Ridge Ranch overnight. Day two, we went on a great 3mile run/hike and did some Pilates by the pool before we hit up Mumm for a flight of champagne and UNTI for a tasting of Italian and Rhone Blends.

The Chalk Hill winemaker’s dinner that evening was the most incredibly grand experience at their brand new and very beautiful dressage pavilion. We  really enjoyed ourselves!! We stayed in Healdsburg that evening at a really cute house with a garden of vegetables that we used for breakfast. We stayed at Hotel Drisco in San Francisco where we shopped and ate amazing food in Chinatown at House of Nanking and in the Marina at A16. It was such a fantastic trip!
