A jumpsuit worn by a U.S. Olympian. An antique handgun. A rustic pair of cowboy boots crowned by a five-gallon hat. Taken out of dusty storage and placed within one of Peak Art & Frame's tasteful borders and protective panes of glass, each of these keepsakes now tells a rich story with every fascinated glance. Drawing on 10 years of experience, Peak Art & Frame’s design-minded owners match clients' works of art with more than 1,500 frames, securing the two- and three-dimensional subjects into elegant encasements that at once protect them and highlight their beauty. Whether adding nostalgia with an old photograph, color with an impressionist painting, or security with a portrait with the eyeholes cut out, the design staff can help imbue homes with elegance by finding the perfect frame and preserving the work in standard or conservation glass.
Powered by positive buzz percolating on the pages of the Wall Street Journal, Ski magazine, and sporty blogs, Ski Butlers's staff of deliverymen and service techs takes the hassle out of outdoor recreation with delivery and pick-up service of ski and snowboard rentals. Starting early in the morning, drivers head to hotels, lodges, and igloos around ski slopes to outfit sportsmen of all ages with high-quality skis, snowboards, and supplies from brands such as Rossignol, Atomic, Elan, Fischer, and Völkl. Butlers carry an assortment of boots and poles to ensure that riders secure a well-fitting rental. After fittings, which can take as long as an hour, butlers slip renters the digits to their help line. In the event of an equipment issue, butlers meet skiers on the mountain to resolve the problem with the minimum possible delay and hassle. The company has grown to service 30 of North America's top ski destinations, including Whistler, Salt Lake City, Telluride, Lake Tahoe, and Thomas Jefferson's cowlicks on Mount Rushmore.
Seven Peaks' multiple locales thrill guests with attractions ranging from water slides to go-karts and bowling. At Seven Peaks Waterpark Provo, the aquatically inclined can cascade down water slides, seesaw around the mammoth half-pipe tube ride, or ride the crests of the 400,000-gallon wave pool. Guests can scan the attractions at Seven Peaks Waterpark Salt Lake City, such as unique water slides and the Amazon River, then plummet off the Cliffhanger, a curvy slide that ends with a sudden 5-foot drop into a pool. The Lehi and Orem locations house an assortment of waterless excursions, including mini golf, go-karts, batting cages, and laser tag.
The Utah Pass of All Passes lets guests use the Fun Centers’ bowling lanes to show off elite bowling skills developed from years of rolling watermelons into doghouses. Pass holders also receive perks such as access to skating at Peaks Ice Arena, admission to events at Rocky Mountain Raceways, and admission to baseball and arena-football games.
Mountains echo with the clicking of hooves on rocks as mountain vegetation waves in the breeze and the sun glistens on snow-dappled trails. Schools of fish scatter as a pair of slick rubber boots parts the waters—a fisher wading through thick river sediment before casting a line into the current. Rocky Mountain Outfitters' experienced outdoorsmen usher customers through all manner of seasonal wilderness adventures, including fly-fishing on the Provo River, snowmobile tours, and horseback riding along mountain trails. Many tours run through Soldier Hollow Valley, which played host to the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Visitors may encounter roving wildlife such as snow rabbits, moose, and fawns frolicking through varied landscapes for memorable photo ops or police sketch-artist renderings. Adventure packages combine more than one outdoor activity and include the Reins and Train adventure, a role-playing tour that merges a train trip with a horseback trail ride. Depending on the season, guests can board traditional wagons or horse-drawn sleighs towed by teams of clydesdales, belgians, and spotted draft, or they can lasso free-range dinner rolls during Old West–style outdoor meals.
