Gregory Alan Isakov

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and calling Colorado home, Gregory Alan Isakov has been traveling all his life. Songs that hone a masterful quality beyond his years tell a story of miles and landscapes, and the search for a sense of place.

His song-craft lends to the deepest lyrical masterpieces, with hints of his influences, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen. He has been described as "strong, subtle, a lyrical genius," but the source of his writing often remains a mystery to him.

Ira Glass with Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass

This American Life host Ira Glass has been working with Monica Bill Barnes & Company to invent a show that combines two art forms that - as Glass puts it - "have no business being together - dance and radio." One is all words and no visuals. One is all visuals and no words. The result is a funny, lively and very talky evening of dance and stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. "What makes it work," says Glass "is a shared sensibility. As dancers, Monica and Anna are these amazingly funny storytellers without words."

50-Inch Storm Kicks off Snowbird Season, Allows Early Opening

Published: 11/13/2012

UtahBusiness.com

The storm that left one to two feet of snow in Salt Lake City deposited 50 inches of snow at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort between Friday and Sunday, allowing the resort to open early, beginning on Thursday, Nov. 15.

"This is the storm we needed to get the season started off right," said Bob Bonar, president of Snowbird. "Lake effect made a good storm into a great storm leaving more than four feet of snow throughout the mountain."

The resort installed new snowmaking equipment over the summer, doubling its snowmaking capacity and allowing more terrain to open earlier in the season. Snowbird also updated the Little Cloud chairlift to a high speed detachable quad. The new lift will have its grand opening with a celebration on Dec. 1.

Gadzoom, Mid-Gad and Chickadee chairlifts will be open on Thursday. Beginner terrain will be available on Chickadee. Intermediate and Advanced terrain will be available on Bassackwards and Big Emma. The remainder of the mountain will be closed to all guests, including hikers.

Averaging an annual 500 inches of snow, Snowbird offers the longest season in Utah.  Details can be found at Snowbird.com, or call (801) 933-2222.
