Olympic Training Grounds
*CONGRATS YOU FOUND THE LAST CLUE. **
"Those who seek an alley of adventure may find the golden ticket."It seems like this season, more and more Olympians are choosing to train at Park City Mountain Resort. After naming the US team at the resort in January, the Norwegian, Swiss and Spanish halfpipe teams have been here the last few weeks. Today, I caught up with them for a special favor. Utah is lucky enough to be hosting Travelocity's Roaming Gnome this weekend. The gnome is experiencing all the reasons why Utah is a great place to be. We felt like the Gnome couldn't visit Utah without checking out our Parks and Pipe. In true Swiss fashion, Sergio Berger stepped up to to show the Travelocity Roaming Gnome a few things in the pipe (some of the other riders weren't so excited for their moment of Gnome glory). Sergio was awesome and willing to make sure the Travelocity folks got the shot! Here are a few shots we got of the Roaming Gnome.
