I’m really enjoying watching the Olympics. I love seeing the skiing events and rooting for my favorites. And it makes me want to get back on skis and glide through the snow. It’s been a long time since I’ve been skiing, but, hey, it’s like riding a bike, isn’t it? Unfortunately for me, I don’t live anywhere near snow.
I’ve found a great deal for skiing. If you live in the greater Salt Lake City area, I’ve got a great deal on skiing for you. I’ll tell you about the ski day pass and rental and then I’ll tell you how you can save money on this.
Jeremy Ranch Golf & Country Club is one part golf, one part country club and one part Nordic skiing center. It is located in Park City, Utah, which was home to the skiing in the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is also one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Every year, when winter arrives, Jeremy Ranch opens up more than six miles (10 kilometers) of Nordic skiing area.
Nordic skiing is the original version of skiing. It includes any form of skiing where the toe is attached to the ski but the heel isn’t. With downhill, aka Alpine, skiing, the entire boot is attached to the ski. In Nordic skiing, the heel of the boot is free which means the skier can push his/her heels freely at any given time.
If you’re watching the Olympics like I am, the cross country skiing is Nordic skiing. Cross country skiing is much easier to learn than Alpine skiing, if you have the correct gear.
And that brings me to Jeremy Ranch’s offer. They are offering a Cross Country Ski Day Pass and Rental Package. The rental package includes all day rental of skis, boots and poles. The ski day pass gives you all day use of their Nordic tracks.
JR Nordic/Golf Shop is open from 9 am to 5 pm. Purchase your pass and then email to reserve a time. Give them your height, weight and age and a screen shot of your Groupon and the staff at the shop will be ready for you when you arrive. They’ll outfit you with all the right gear, answer any questions you may have and it’s off to the Nordic tracks.
The equipment is in good condition. They have many paths with plenty of room for you to figure things out if it’s your first time. If you’re experienced and like speed, skate skiing would work well for you on this well groomed Nordic area.
This really is the best and most affordable place for beginners. And you will enjoy the beauty that is Park City in the winter.
