Another week closer to ski season! As I am typing this post the wind is howling and the rain is really coming down. The forecast for tonight is rain changing to snow with snow on and off through Thursday. It’s our first big winter storm of the season. Forecasts range from 6″ to over 2+ feet! One of my favorite things about living in a ski town is the excitement for snow. Growing up in Cincinnati, everyone dreaded snow. Out here in Park City, it is celebrated. Whether its the bank, the local deli, or the grocery store the town fills with energy as ski season approaches. Enough about the weather, I will start up my powder forecasts here in the next few weeks. Onto this week’s installment of Weekly events in Park City, Utah :
