The Top 6 Day Hikes in Park City

September 8, 2020 by Rachel Friedman Elberts

Hiking in Park City can be a four-season activity that is fun for the whole family. We are lucky to live in a place where we have access to a plethora of trails that highlight some of our best scenery from shady aspen groves, high alpine lakes, and wildflowers, to autumn leaves, wildlife, and epic views.

Woodward Park City, Not Just for Kids

August 4, 2020 by Rachel Friedman Elberts

I’ve always been inspired by skateboarders, their style, skills, persistence, and sense of freedom. They make skateboarding look effortless, almost zen-like, and I’ve been a fan and a semi-passive bystander for a while. I own a couple of boards that I mainly use for cruising around the neighborhood, but I’ve never taken a lesson to really hone in on those fundamentals. Like with any sport, having a good mastery of the basics to build on is key to staying safe and having fun when you’re out getting after it.

Experience the Salt Method for Some Self-care

March 3, 2020 by Rachel Friedman Elberts

I’ve been a big fan of Pilates for a long time, so when I found The Salt Method in Kimball Junction, I was beyond excited to continue my love affair with this type of exercise. Much to my delight, I learned the studio is female-owned and operated.  The pilates classes take place amongst the relaxing glow and healing properties of Himalayan salt blocks. If you are new to the mind-body practice of Pilates, with consistency, it improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. But, The Salt Method doesn’t just offer Pilates, they also offer yoga, halotherapy, massages, facials, and acupuncture - a one-stop-shop for self-care.
