So I packed my snowboarding gear with me as well. I still have only the carry on, aside from the snowboard gear. You can see how I packed so light in the video.
The snow conditions was great, lots of runs and powder all the way. On day one of the course, I was told by one of the lecturers that having both eye dominance is better than one eye dominance. So although I was used to using heels and my left side forward, I tried using both sides. It was hard to switch to the right leg, but it got easier after the first run. I got on the black runs, but it's wider than those in Tremblant and Courmayeur , so it was safe to experiment. It was harder to switch to toe and right at the same time though. I still have my down time, trying to knee myself away from the edge of the cliff when I was too far to the right in kicking off.
As the courses go from 1-8pm, I had the chance to swim the next morning. There was a crater across from our hotel, with warm water all year round. So why not? For those who has more time, they do snorkling and diving programs too.
Park City is a bit of a town in itself. Nice shops around. I didn't have time to shop, but did try out one of the restaurants. It's better to eat meat there than seafood there, I should say. Check out my video!
