You know when your drive up to Vermont manages to include stops at three separate breweries, you are in for a good weekend. That was exactly the case for us on our annual "adults only" trip that, this year, fell on St. Patrick's Day weekend. Sure the Taconic is slightly out of the way but when that route include beers as tasty as Peekskill Brewery's Eastern Standard IPA and Chatham Brewing's Farmer's Daughter, combined with the delicious Poutine topped with a fried egg that we had at Peekskill Brewery, that extra distance instantly became irrelevant. The fact that the ride...

A week before I was heading up to Vermont and it was dumping snow. Winter storm upon winter storm had deposited over two feet of fresh pow all over the state and I was stoked to take advantage of this. One problem, I was still a week out and, as luck would have it, warmer temps and rain were on the way. My Martin Luther King weekend had already been partially wiped out by similar weather and it looked like my presidents' weekend would be too. Good thing was I was headed to Mount Snow both times and their new state-of-the-art...

Starving after a long ride up and certainly thirsting for some cold bevvies to kick start the weekend, we rolled into The Killarney, a local Irish pub that has a pretty hopping apres ski scene during the winter months at Okemo. In town for the annual Okemo media weekend we were excited to see some of our friends and get out and make our first tracks of the season with them the next day. So I texted my good buddy Greg Burke, who along with his wife Heather run Family Ski Trips, an excellent source for ski trip destination reviews....

One last hurrah on our Ski Utah après ski overindulgence trip and we were spending it at Deer Valley. There's just something special about Deer Valley, that I can't seem to put my finger on. I'd say it has a country club feel to it, and it does to a degree, but there is certainly not the snobbery there that can come with a country club. It's more that the place just makes you feel like your part of the family. A feeling that is only aided by the fact that they have the highest employee return rate out of...

Part 2: Park City Mountain Resort Park City Mountain Resort is big...really big. I mean, duh, it is the largest ski resort in the United States thanks to Vail Resorts acquisition of the original Park City Resort which they connected with the former Canyons Mountain via the Quicksilver Gondola. This gave them 7300 acres of ski-able terrain and something you probably should trying skiing all in one day. However, when you're on a tour of the resort, you can damn sure try. Although we fell short by quite a bit we did manage to ski from The Canyons Village side...
