While many people look forward to spring and the warm months of summer, Dr Barry Waldman is always hoping for a long and snowy winter season (at least up away in the mountains).
Dr Barry has been an avid skier for many years and continues to enjoy the hobby today.
Previously, Dr Barry Waldman worked as a ski instructor at various ski resorts in Utah as well as Colorado.
One of Dr Barry Waldman favorite ski resorts is Deer Valley Resort on the outskirts of Park City, Utah. The mountain has a 3,000 foot vertical drop and over 2,000 acres of skiable area. Deer Valley is known for being family friendly with its consistently well groomed beginner and intermediate trails.
In 2002, Deer Valley was one of the host sites for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. The freestyle moguls, aerials, and slalom events were held here with great success. The moguls events involved athletes skiing down a slope covered with moguls attempting to get to the bottom of the hill as fast as possible. At the same time, athletes would earn points for technique and skill during the two aerial jumps included in the course. The aerial events also consisted of two jumps which were judged by air, form, and landing ability. Slalom events involve speeding down a winding course marked with flags or poles. Team U.S.A. saw great success during the 2002 Winter Olympics at Deer Valley, bringing home 3 silver medals in men’s and women’s moguls and men’s aerials.
For Dr Barry Waldman, skiing is a great way to spend time outdoors, stay active, and have fun with friends and family. There is nothing better than feeling the rush of the cool wind on your face as you glide gracefully down the mountain, not to mention the incredible scenic views that come along with the whole experience.
