Sundance screening of "I Ride Park City"
Today's bluebird day reminded me more of March than January, the temperatures were pretty mild. It was one of those perfect park days, the ones you usually dream about until March or early April. As you know, King's Crown opened last week. I know all of you read Matt's post on how to Smart Style it, if you didn't read it yet, do it now. The only thing left at this point is upper Jonesy's. Thanks park crew for all of your hard work so far! Now that the mountain and parks are open it's time to get your shred on! Well, your shred on and of course checking out of the events we have planned for the next few weeks.
In Sundance fashion, we are very excited for our own film, "I Ride Park City" to be one of 30 films chosen to be a part of the X-Dance Film Festival. There will be an "I Ride Park City" screening Friday, January 16 at 6:00 p.m. The screening will be at Off Broadway Theatre in SLC (272 S. Main St). Tickets can be purchased at www.x-dance.com and are between $5 and $7. Athletes from the film will be in attendance. If you haven't seen "I Ride Park City" yet, here is your chance. You can also purchase the film at www.pcride.com or at the resort.

After a hectic freeski season and competing on an injured knee, Monster Energy freeskier Tom Wallisch found some time at his home resort of Park City in Utah to stack some footage before he underwent season-ending surgery. Watch as he displays why—even at half speed—he's still the best in the game.

The Sochi Games are just days away, and while we'll be rooting hard for every Team USA athlete - from the curlers to the figure skaters - we'll be cheering especially hard for 2 athletes in particular: because they're our very own! Slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg and slopestyle freeskier Joss Christensen are both Park City locals and both part of "I Ride Park City" All Stars. Both will be in medal contention, and we couldn't be prouder to have them as representatives to the world both of our mountain and their hometown of Park City.
We saw too much style from the skiers in the park last year to not give them their due. They grab the spotlight in the "IRPC" sequel's premiere outdoors and under the stars September 14.
It's event seaosn. Our first two events are paying out cold, hard cash. Get up here and get paid.

Last fall many of you may have come up to Park City for the premiere of I Ride Park City. I was there, it was an awesome time. The film is unique in the sense that it was filmed entirely at one mountain...Park City Mountain Resort
