    Although all of the Salt Lake Ski Resorts (Alta, Brighton, Solitude and Snowbird) are open for skiing, warm temps this week have returned to the valley.

  • Guess who came last night?

    You know it! November is here and we had a late change of the colors. I have been trying to get some great shots of the trees turning around downtown, but I was just one day too late!

    A big storm rolled through Salt Lake last night putting down a solid blanket of Utah's Greatest Snow on Earth along the way.
