Let's face it, there is nothing quite like that first beer that you have at the bar after a long day of making turns on the mountain. As a self-proclaimed Beach Bum and Ski Bum I can absolutely say that even drinking with an ocean view does not even compare. There's just something about après ski beers. That, "I've earned this" feeling just makes them the best. Capitalizing on this mantra and looking to really challenge skiers and riders to earn their après, Park City Ski Resort will host their inaugural Seven Summits Challenge this weekend.
This Saturday, February 24th advanced skiers and riders will take on the challenge of covering all seven peaks of the largest ski resort in the United States. This challenge is no joke. Skiers and riders will be required to hike a handful of peaks, navigate their way across some of the most advanced terrain on the mountain. Participants can choose their own routes, but must check in at all seven pre-designated peak locations on the mountain. The challenge will begin at the Park City Mountain Village and will end with a celebratory après ski party at Red Pine Lodge. However, a sweet après party complete with live music by Triggers & Slips on the Canyons Village Stage isn't all you'll earn. In addition to these guaranteed good times, participants who complete the challenge will earn bragging rights, a commemorative pin and hat and entrance into a drawing to win sweet Helly Hansen swag. If only I lived a bit closer, I'd be all over this but my geographical incorrectness shouldn't stop you.
