Skiing at Sunrise: First Tracks at Canyons Resort

Category: I'm Not that Dad

First Tracks is a unique offering at Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah where skiers get to literally watch the mountain wake up. It’s skiing at sunrise. A small group, escorted by Canyons hosts and at least one Olympic skier heads up the mountain as the sun is rising. For 90 minutes, the ski resort is only the province of this lucky group. This program is open to the public; it’s reasonably priced, and it’s topped off with breakfast at 9:00 at the mid-way point, just as the resort is opening to the public. I got the special pleasure of skiing at sunrise with Holly Flanders, two-time Olympian, and the focus of my GoPro much of this short teaser video of this extraordinary experience.

    That’s one of those can’t quite explain it moments. Glad you got to see the day wake up on the mountain
