Morning 11/27 was magic; a storm was coming in and anything could happen as we wait for the endless Wasatch Summer to end.

Pre frontal moisture produces the most amazing colors and usually a shit ton of snow;

The colors went off but the storm sucked and the endless summer is still firmly in place…….

Snow God Sacrifices might soon be required.

22. November 2017 · Comments Off on New for 2017! PPPC Gift Guide!(for you, not them) · Categories: Blatant Utah tourism propaganda

All New for 2017! It’s the Pedal n Pole Gifts for YOU Gift Guide for the core outdoors person! The Editorial Staff was very conscious to put this together in a highly user friendly, clickable format to maximize buying potential by you, gentle reader. (Our Director of Consumer experience has fully signed off on this post, fyi)

Starting off the Holiday Joy;
Nothing says love like a stratospherically priced, way over built, indestructible cooler! So ask for one. Personally we want one of EACH from the Yeti catalog. Nothing says you have made it more in the core outdoors world than pulling a cool one from the iced out confines of your Yeti Cooler while lounging in a reclining camp lounger at the bottom of the Zen trail. Dare to picture it…..


The Best Possible Gift is, of course, CASH!
But how do you just straight up ask for money? In the Form of a REI Gift Card! Then you can buy whatever cool stuff you want and do not have to risk recieving an off brand gift from a loved one who does not understand outdoor brand culture.(I mean, no one wants a Columbia puffy…)


Quality Travel Gear and Camp Chairs are expensive!
So ask for them as gifts! Just send your relatives the link below and be sure to include a detailed list of desired items.

You don’t want socks or a sweater this year; You want a LONG TRAVEL GHOST 29ER! Don’t even take the chance of being given the wrong gift. Just send that link over in a email asap!

Asking for pricey outdoor gear as gifts sure can take the sting out of the pocketbook! Tis the season not to be shy and aim high on the gift prices!!

The Editorial Staff,

…….They are coming! 2018 is definitely going to be the year of the eBike with sales up 80% yoy in 2017.

These eBikes do not have a throttle and use a pedal assist model.

Raleigh is one of the companies leading they way into this moto/mtn world. Take a look;

The entire line of Raleigh eBikes can be found by clicking through these banners(and it wouldn’t hurt to actually buy something, gentle/freeloading reader);

Trail and usage management issues are going to be poppin like Jiffy pop in 2018!!

Here in Park City we have an eBike share program that just done blew up over the summer. First of it’s kind nationwide apparently. So many eBikes on the bike paths and all over the town. The average tourist loves these things and especially passing spandex clad local roadies who also use the bike path.

A lot of bell clanging and yelling “Left” going on….

Going to be a interesting next couple years on the dirt!

Whenever a storm front is bearing down on the Wasatch some pretty insane sunset/sunrises are a daily thing; IMG_0024

Our friend, the 8k funktop loop, shows the moisture is on the way; http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/west/weus/h5-loop-ft.html

Big question is; Does the Mountain Biking Season end on Thursday; 11/15?

Stay tuned to find out!

YES!! We did it again………

Everyone who has anything to do with anything has been fired here at PPPC and this blog is still the worst in the industry. No consistent posting. No consistent line of content. The only thing really worth a crap here is our Affiliation with Freeski Cat Super Star, Big Nelz.

But damn, we do know how to have a good time!

3-2-1, Dropping!

Rock pops for days!

Pro Gap Alert!

All action stunts performed by the undercover as Diamondback Bikes Marketing Manager/Mega Shredder; TJ Trotter on the Grafton Mesa DH trail and the big gap is the Grafton Gap for the dead and or way uninformed.

Check out TJ’s New for 2018, Diamondback Carbon Release right here;

So despite again being named Worst Outdoor Blogger of the Year, PPPC is back for winter 2017!

Some new features added to the site for this season include Old Man Bentons Wasatch Winter Rain Calendar! Boy are we excited to kick this one off! This allows you, gentle reader, to accurately account for all the days this coming winter where it rains when it used to snow! OMB(Old Man Benton) lives at 7,000ft where it actually used to snow all winter long and now does not and he is NOT Happy about this at all.

From the entire staff here at Pedal n Pole Park City; Welcome back Winter!
(though high pressure currently reigns in the Wasatch so that means a lot more mtn biking and OMB is already PISSED!)
