Powder-Perfect Staycation

Last weekend we enjoyed a powder-perfect staycation and got to experience the very best of Utah skiing!

The whole staycation thing started a few years ago when we were on vacation in Breckenridge, Colorado. Breck's base is at like 9,500 feet, was freezing, and the snow was dumping in Utah. We looked at each other and said, "why the heck did we ever leave Utah?!?" and since then we've taken time every year to stay at a different Utah resort and enjoy the best our home state has to offer.

This year we did the Alta/Snowbird ski in/ski out condo thing and it was perfect. The snow was amazing (got over 20" while we were there) and the condo had a hot tub. It was everything you need in a ski vacation.

We skied two days each at Alta and Snowbird and after chasing my kids down both mountains for four straight days I can testify: there are few greater joys than ripping the black diamonds with your kiddos. I freaking love how well these kids ski and their fearless attitudes toward the snow!

We also had plenty of condo time to play games, soak in the hot tub, eat tons of snacks, and do puzzles. It was nice to have a comfortable, convenient place to unwind after a big day on the slopes.

Of course, the only reason to rest up is so that you can hit the pow afresh the next morning, right?!?

Don't worry, we saved a little powder for you, too. Come on out to Utah!
