Park City & U.S Grand Prix Half Pipe

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Friday night we grabbed some friends and headed up to Park City to see the half pipe event and also walk around and do some "star" gazing during the Sundance Film Festival. It was incredibly cold but totally worth it. While watching the half pipe we befriended a cute lady from New Zealand who was so excited to meet real mormons. We got a kick out of it.

One of the worst things to see was a couple athletes who got injured while going down the half pipe. One in particular injured his leg pretty bad and I felt so awful watching him lay there screaming. One of the worst feelings ever. I couldn't believe he got up after a while and skied down the rest of it on one leg. These athletes are pretty amazing. 

Here is a quick video of one of the skiers we saw that night. Pretty incredible to think some of these athletes will be going on to the Olympics next month in Sochi! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! 


  1. That is awesome, so exciting you got to be there!
