I love Alpine Coasters and Alpine Slides! Is there any law against counting them as credits? I know Jeff Johnsons answer, but what about the rest of you?

Not at all. Some people do, some people don't. We draw the line at powered coasters and Alpine Slides/Coasters/BobKarts, but that's just our personal preference. This is nothing wrong with adding them to your list if you want to.

Well, not too much to report from our final day in Park City. We decided to have a lazy day and just hang out at the cabin. We skipped out on doing tubing since we were all pretty sore from 2 days of skiing! Even KidTums! Had a nice lunch, and then just hung out! It was awesome!


Image
Good morning! Here is our current view from our cabin! More fresh snow!

Image
Russell has decided the weather was PERFECT for a dip in the hot tub!

Image
"It takes some jumbo sized balls to hot tub in zero degree weather!"

Image
Our next stop... Squatters brew pub!

Image
You walk in and see this wonderful sight!

Image
I think Derek would approve of this festive decoration!

Image
So many beers to choose from!

Image
Russell has the oatmeal stout and Robb tries the apricot.

Image
Wings and beer!

Image
KidTums says "Where's MY beer?"

Image
2nd course - Jambalaya and Pilsner!

Image
Noted!

Image
Squatters was great! Well, the food and the beer was great, the service was kind of A$$, but really its the food and beer that count!

And that wraps up our Winter Vacation! Hopefully something like this will turn into more of an official TPR "off-season" trip if anyone is interest in this kind of thing.

Thanks for reading! Happy New Year!

We don't, no. But I can see why people do. I mean, they have a lift hill, they run on tubular steel track, and some of them are more thrilling than real coasters! I mean, I count wacky worms, but not this. Makes no sense, not even to me! =)

I don't either, but I see why Jeff does.

For me,

Alpine Coasters-yes
Alpine Slides-no


BTW, glad to hear the alpine coaster at Park City still kicks butt. I really enjoyed that one too.

Great trip reports as usual, Robb.

But isn't La Vibora and Disaster transport really just an oversized Alpine Slide? In which case I would tend to lean toward yes. :?r

It is a conundrum and is making my brain hurt.

I'm glad you guy's had an awesome vacation. I would love to go on a winter trip like this, but in this economy a cross-country trip is not going to happen. :(

Oh Robb, how many beers did Russell have before going in the hot tub? lol :lmao:

The big difference is that on those rides you are not in control of the speed. What separates an Alpine Coaster for me is the fact that if I wanted to, I could bring the ride to a complete stop. To me, while a roller coaster is technically controlled chaos, in order for it to count, the rider should have no control over it.

But that's just my personal preference, there are no set rules. I know people who count log flumes...
