It's a funny thing, I like to hike for my turns. Ok, maybe not backcountry type hike, but I really enjoy the in-bounds areas at resorts where you have to take your skis or board off and hike a bit to access the terrain. It just seems like you're doing something more than just riding a lift which makes the turns feel all that much more special. One of the iconic areas at Park City Mountain Resort to 'earn your turns' is Jupiter Peak, which opened today with the East Face and Puma Bowl providing some great bluebird powder turns.
