At Jim McLean Golf School, all students have an impressive audience: an experienced teacher, and the mountains on the horizon. The school offers group and private lessons on its driving range, chipping green, putting green, and nine-hole course. As clients work on perfecting their swing, JC golf-swing analysis software helps chart weak points and suggest solutions, and the staff doles out personalized pointers on everything from form to what putter would best fit your body. Some packages even bundle classes with lunch and time on the nearby 18-hole Red Ledges course. During the winter, lessons can relocate to an indoor facility in Park City, where a simulator recreates the course experience on an enormous screen.
Whether splashing down the Weber River in an inner tube or trotting along the shores of Echo Lake on horseback, visitors on Destination Sports' outdoor trips experience the beauty of the Utah countryside. Tubing adventures send floaters down 7 miles of river through churning Class II rapids, placid waters, and wilderness scenery. Those on two wheels can hit the trails on mountain bikes, cruising through Park City's historic Main Street before heading out to the hills for views of the mountains and the elusive wild bikes that live on them.
Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.
Shooting with Canon Vixia HFM31 cameras in full high definition, the crew at Robin Hood Studios helps create lasting memories and professional promotions. The team specializes in filming everything from weddings and family reunions to football games and TV commercials for local businesses. Robin Hood Studios also stretches their creative muscles by creating something they dub "Muvies." Clients that choose to do a Muvie get the chance to take their favorite song and have its story performed by actors and filmed by the Robin Hood crew. Unlike music videos, which often focus more on the musicians performance, Muvies bring clients' favorite songs to life.
