Winter Escapes

Favorite Pastimes of Local Execs

Heather Stewart

November 1, 2011

Utah Business talked to six Utah execs who shared their favorite winter getaways—close to home or distant adventures.

Laguna Beach, California

Brandon D. Fugal

Executive Vice President,

Coldwell Banker Commercial

“There is nothing better than reading a good book while soaking in the sun and incredible views....a fabulous getaway!”

Favorite restaurant: Five Crowns up Pacific Coast Highway—a five-course meal at an old English-style manor


Bear Lake

Alice A. Jackson, RN

President, Lifetree Clinical Research

“Bear Lake is more of a draw in the summer months. Winter is much quieter, which is the reason we like it. Life for me is so fast paced, that I seek quieter places to vacation…

We snow-mobile, pull grandchildren around on tubes and just relax by the fire. Nothing like winters in Bear Lake!”


Cabin in Weber Canyon

Maxine Turner

President, Cuisine Unlimited Catering & Special Events

“One New Year’s Eve, we had just finished working a Park City party and decided to stay at our cabin. We parked our car, bundled up against the crisp night air and traveled by snowmobile up the snow-covered road to our cabin. It was one of those moments in life that you promise yourself you will never forget. Glistening snow was illuminated by a full moon. It was simply beautiful and I am reminded to this day how lucky we are to live in this state.”

Favorite restaurants: The Yolk for breakfast and Polar King for burgers (both in Kamas)


The Escapes at Entrada, St. George

Colin Wright

CEO, Henry Walker Homes

“The incredible views and the slower pace of life are a great change up that allows you to relax, focus on the kids and forget the smog of the Wasatch Front. Nothing like it.”

Favorite restaurants: Painted Pony, Bear Paw Café, and Oscar’s Café (Zions)


Snowbird Ski Resort

Brandon Mackay


“[We] ski, ski and when we’re done skiing we ski...”

Favorite restaurants: Steak Pit in Little Cottonwood or Riverhorse in Park City


Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

William L. Grodnik

President & CEO, Davinci Virtual Office

“We live in Park City so we get plenty of ski days, but when it’s time to take a break and get some sun we head to Playa Del Carmen in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.”
