vehicle (not necessarily a SUV) in case there is snow or they
won't let you up to the mountains. If you get a regular
car and it snows heavily, the canyon will be restricted, you can
drive to the lot at the entrance of the canyon and take the bus up - they run

to stay home we will have some selection of lunch foods
available to you.

People say Utah is boring
compared to other ski destinations. That's old news. In 2009,
Utah changed their alcohol laws so that they are similar to
those of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. It's not New
York City, but there are plenty of places to go out and have
fun. There are plenty of bars and dance clubs both locally
and in Downtown. You can go to dueling pianos, karaoke, see live
bands, go dancing, or just hang out and watch a football game.

the street, so designate a driver or be responsible with your

Bowling, Antiquing and Shopping, Hill Aerospace Museum, Arcades,

Everyone gets their own
bed. The only exception is New Year's eve when we put air
mattresses in other rooms of the house as we don't want people
to drink and drive. We do have 5.5 bathrooms so it should all
work out. When you leave, we ask that you strip the bed of your
linens so that we can wash them for the next guests.
We have a ski room off the
garage for your skis, boots and helmets. We ask that everyone
keep their equipment in there and not in their rooms. We have a
multi-boot dryer available in that room and also outlets for
your own personal boot dryers in there as well. If you don't
want to bring your equipment along, we have discount coupons for
ski rentals at many of the major shops.
Shoes are to be taken off
before you enter the house so if you don't like walking barefoot
please bring slippers, flip flops or fuzzy socks.
We have a hot tub available so
bring your swim wear. Beers can be consumed there but be sure
to use one of the plastic cups we will leave on the counter. We
also have some large beach towels for you to take to the hot tub
so there's no need to bring your own towels.
We supply toiletries (soap,
shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, lotion) so no need to bring
that unless you want to. We have 2 hair dryers in the house as
well if you choose not to bring your own.
