ABOUT THE PARK CITY SPECIAL SERIES
Ben headed out to Park City, Utah in June to check out the area's riding, the people involved, and take in the great experience that the area has to offer. As someone who has never spent time in or around Park City, it was an eye-opening great experience. It's definitely a world class destination worthy of consideration for a mountain biking vacation.
A special thanks to Mountain Biking Park City, Park City Lodging, Deer Valley Resort, Jans Mountain Recreation Experts, and everyone involved with putting this together. A huge thanks goes out to Scott House for being our host/guide and all of his time, knowledge, expertise, and hospitality. Also, a big thanks to Eric Porter for allowing us to try to follow his wheel on some great trails.
