No snowboarders. Sorry shredders, the dark side not allowed here. I know, I know, I even gave birth to one of you but I really hate that sound of you scraping off all the powder just behind me while I hold my breath hoping you actually know how to turn that thing, because often, you don’t. No lift lines. Deer Valley limits the number of tickets they sell during peak ski times. In the spring they don’t need to. It would seem many of you are already headed to the Caribbean to work on your […] Continue reading →

Sundance Film Festival

This is a guest post by the fabulous Mrs. DJ Duckworth, the newest Luxury Travel Mom. The way she travels makes me look like a hobo, and her background in TV Journalism makes her a natural fit for this site. She recently took in The Sundance Film Festival, for the sixth time. She gives the scoop on how to get Sundance Film Festival Tickets, what to wear and where to spa. You can make it happen whether you’re a newbie or if you have “people”. After six years at the Sundance […] Continue reading →

Ever dreamed of living in Paris like a Parisian? Sipping coffee in your living room with a balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower…cooking romantic dinners a deux in your petit kitchen?

They give Park City eight thumbs up. Here are the reasons why: #1  Small Ski School Classes – and awesome […] Continue reading →

I have been lucky enough to be a Snowmama for the last two years and now here’s your chance. Top 5 Reasons you should stop what you’re doing (unless you’re making out with Mark Wahlberg) and apply right now:   1. Park City. It’s world class snow only 30 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport. There is no other mountain more fabulous or easily accessible for a family. 2. Park City ski school. They have the best student to instructor ratio in the industry. In my […] Continue reading →

I wanted to go mountain bike riding. Park City is crawling with healthy looking people wearing fanny packs that are somehow cool, all riding the mountain trails. I ski every winter but I’ve never been to a ski resort in the summer. Why would I? You can’t ski. I get it now. It’s heaven on earth. Despite having a bad scar from falling over on my bike last summer (I was standing still), I decided I was bad ass enough to try a mountain bike. The girl in the shop took one look […] Continue reading →
