Solitude Closes With Style

Solitude locals definitely know how to have a good time come rain or shine and today’s closing day brought out the best (and weirdest) that Utah has to offer.

Hand Warmers…Anyone?

It’s not like we haven’t had a few sunny, warm days to remind us that spring is truly upon us but in the last few weeks it has felt more like January than April. Not that I am complaining, I mean who wouldn’t want to ski fresh powder on a daily basis well into the […]

The Goods…Worth the Wait!

I almost turned around this morning and went home…almost. Did one of the biggest dumps of the year really have to happen on a Friday night?

Oops, I Did It Again!

Well, while the war rages on my Facebook page and the folks at home have nothing better to do than throw spitballs at each other, I decided to take my eight year old Noah OUT TO HONEYCOMB!

The ????? Line

Ahhh…The sun is shining, the winds are calm and for the moment, spring is in the air. This is Utah so I know not to get too used to the sunshine as the weather here is some of the wackiest. Snow will head in and the temperatures will drop (which we really want to happen […]
