Four Utah-Centric Tips to Make Your Trip Fantabulous.
Deer Valley is vacation pay dirt. The canyons, the sunsets, the rivers and lakes, even the wildflowers all combine into a spectacular one-of-a-kind opportunity for serious memory-making. But how do you take advantage of the best Deer Valley has to offer?
The answer is simple: follow these four rules-of-thumb:
1. Try something new.
Instead of the same-old same-old, vow to attempt at least one new activity — something that gets your heart pumping just enough to remind you that you’ve still got it. It’ll be your Utah Holy Grail.
- Alpine Sliding? Now’s your chance, right smack in Park City. Nobody’s fallen off yet. At least, I don’t think so.
- Ever river rafted? There are guided rafting and tube trips for every level of nervous Nellie. Plenty of life jackets too.
- Horseback riding! Rediscover those inner thigh muscles. You know you want to.
2. Wear old hiking boots.
The fabulous places to walk will beckon you to push a little further, go a little higher, stay a little longer. Unfortunately, your feet may chicken out. Give them courage with soft, broken-in boots and cushy socks that say, “it’s okay, feet. You can do this. Really.”
It’s sunny. It’s warm. You burn. ‘Nuf said.
4. Bring a backpack.
Folks who don’t hike think they won’t need backpacks. Trust me, you will. Even non-walkers get jazzed about the outdoors when they visit Deer Valley. Well, unless you’re visiting with colleagues over refreshing drinks. Or you’re gently spacing out in the ginormous pool. Or you’re sleeping in, then heading to the spa. Hmmm. Bring a backpack anyway.
I’ll be hanging out at the conference checking my teeth and taking photos. If you tell me about your holy grail adventure, I’ll give you lots of kudos with embarrassing gusto.
