The feeling of wind against your face. That rush of adrenaline as you lean into a hairpin turn. The first time a snowman asks you for your autograph. These are the moments that make skiing one of the world’s most exhilarating sports. While Utah supplies the snow-capped mountains and rolling hills, Skis and Tours handles the equipment. The skiing and snowboarding shop is located within close proximity to ski resorts such as Canyons and Park City. Its expert staff pairs customers with sets of rental poles, skis, boots, and boards from brands such as Rossignol. In addition to renting this gear, they also tune up and wax boards and skis to get them ready for the slopes.
Now in their 86th season, the Harlem Globetrotters continue to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2012 world tour, a rotating roster of Globetrotter favorites take to the hardwood each game, so spectators might spot Special K Daley sharing a behind-the-back pass with newcomer Jacob “Hops” Tucker, the 2011 NCAA slam-dunk champion whose 50-inch vertical leap cruelly dashed his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Trotters might also present a study in contrasts with five-foot-two Too Tall Hall and seven-foot-eight Paul "Tiny" Sturgess, the world's tallest pro basketball player.
For more than 30 years, Green Street has been dishing out a full menu of beer-hall staples while invigorating ears with live entertainment five nights a week. During warm months, customers can lounge on Green Street's palatial garden patio while noshing on palate-pleasing appetizers such as sweet potato fries ($4.99), artichoke dip ($7.29), or the Combo Mombo—a platter of chicken wings, potato skins, southwestern egg rolls, and battered fried mushrooms ($9.99) easily shared among friends or devoured by one huge toddler. An onslaught of entrees includes the blackened-salmon caesar salad, which parades across the palate led by an 8-ounce filet ($9.49), or the chili verde burrito ($7.99) served as a special on Tuesdays, sating beginning of the week tortilla-entrapped cravings. An Angus bacon cheeseburger ($7.99) and a half-rack of grilled, barbecued baby-back ribs ($12.99) round out meat-centric menu options.
The Busath studio is a historic mansion with elegant rooms and stately gardens all set for babies, children, high-school graduates, families, couples, and pet rocks to strike a pose. The professional photographers will flick their fingers to determine the MVP (most valuable pose) in a fresh, yet classical, style that superbly captures countenances, personalities, and sonic screams. Once the flash powder has settled, Busath will guide the pictures through development, and from there you choose the most festive image for an 11"x14" print or 25 5"x7" Christmas cards. Busath Photography has been capturing cherished moments for more than 37 years, three generations, and 500 lunar days. During that time, the camera-wielding warriors have received an arsenal of accolades. In April 2010, Busath was awarded the Best of State award in the Visual Arts: Photography - Portrait category, and, in May 2010, Professional Photographer magazine featured the company on the cover and in a feature story.
