Olympic Skiers in Park City

Olympic Skiers in Park City

That’s right folks, we are pretty much olympic skiers now. If you follow on Instagram , or  Facebook you saw that we recently headed off to Deer Valley Skiing Resort  for the weekend and had the best time ever. Our main reason for going was that we’ve lived in Utah for 6 years, and not only do none of us ski ever, we’ve NEVER skied. Skiing at Deer Valley was our number one goal and we were so excited/nervous (me) to try something so fun, and new.

We started out by heading to the ski rental area and that’s where we had our first interactions with the employees, and don’t get me wrong here, I’m never a complainer about staff or the way I was treated unless it was HORRENDOUS, but I also don’t give out compliments on how we were treated unless it was outstanding. Deer Valley staffers are amazing. Period. No one knew us from Joe on the street, but we were treated like friends or family. And it wasn’t just us. There was a sweet, little couple that was checking out their ski gear in front of us and they were treated just as well. Mr Handsome and I just kept looking at each other and saying, “seriously? Could these people be any more kind or helpful?!” We do not need people to dote on us at all,  in fact normally we do our own thing on vacation and we just don’t have a ton of interaction with employees, but when you are vacationing somewhere and you are greeted, welcomed and cared for as if you were visiting your best friend’s home, well that changes everything. Suddenly your vacation seems happier, more carefree and fun, and you really begin to relax.
