The Canyons 10:05am-11:00 Vertical: 2,200 feet

As the temperature climbed and the skies remained cloudless, we arrived at the Canyons to wrap up the Summit County leg of our trip. We headed up the Flight of the Canyons gondola to the trail Tombstone that took us to the Lookout lift. Once at the top of the Lookout lift, we headed down Sidewinder and Doc's Run to the bottom.

The snow was the ideal spring corn. Marriott described it best when she proclaimed, "That was the perfect, creamy butter snow."

I scored my 15 minutes of fame in the form of a little TV time at the Canyons, as Park City Television was on-hand to interview us and pronounce Rafferty and I Park City's "Athletes of the Week."

With time to spare and the cameras rolling, Rafferty, Marriott, and I hit the video arcade briefly to see who was the fastest driver in a video game that now seems like a blur.
