While Utah's land has been a hot topic in the news lately with a controversial reduction of Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase-Escalante, many areas in the state are actively working toward efforts of environmental sustainability. Last winter, I had a first-hand look at three destinations in Utah that specialize in ski tourism: Sundance Mountain Resort, Park City and Alta Ski Area.
Some would say it's the best time of day — pulling your boots off (or maybe you should keep those feet covered) and raising a glass after a great day of play. It's called apres here in the mountains, and it can be as much an adventure as the day you've had so far. Where are you going to spend it? Here's some intel to help you dive right in. Like those secret stashes on the mountain, Vail Valley locals always know where to go.
I'm tempted to start with a poem here, but that seems cliche. And Valentine's Day is too, you say? Oops, there's a rhyme, and you're rolling your eyes. But wait, there's more, I have a surprise …This holiday has a heart, just like you and me. Lots of things to do, and some of them are free! Celebrate true love or your favorite best friend,Just have the sweetest day, all the way 'til the end.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
