A Week of Power and Powder....

It's my dream, and I think I'll try the ole manifest method of making it come true. Either that, or I'm gonna set about doing some research and see if I can put together a retreat week next March at The Canyons in Park City Utah which will play the delicious synergy of skiing and yoga, yoga and skiing. Saluting the sun in the morning, standing poses to wake up the legs and keep the body warm. Skiing all day, lessons if needed, meeting at lunchtime for mid-day flexibility enhancers using skis, boots and poles as props right out there under the mountain sunshine. Followed by hot tub and then a full practice. Healthy meals geared toward acclimating to high altitudes and maximizing athletic performance in the thinly oxygenated air.

It's my only excuse to get to Utah next year since another trip to Steamboat is practically in the can, as it should be, since it really is the ultimate family ski resort. The Canyons, on the other hand, is really the perfect place for a yoga/ski retreat. The folks there have a different, more adventurous, less suburban vibe.

So, what do we think? Does anyone have any feedback on the initial idea? Anyone with an interest, even remote, in joining?

Hey Lauren- that sounds amazing! Of course, my first choice would be whistler, but I guess Utah would be ok. I actually asked CH about doing something like that last year in vermont, and he laughed me off!
