Last week, during the World Premiere of "I Ride Park City," I noticed that there was a serious chill in the air as the evening progressed. I wanted to believe that the chill was due watching the great riding and huge amounts of snow that was featured throughout the movie, but I know better - winter is just a few short weeks down the road and we were reminded of that over the past holiday weekend when the upper slopes of the mountain actually saw snow!
Another reminder that winter is closing in is that our season pass sales are in full swing with the best deals to be had before September 30 on our pass sales site at parkcitymountain.com/pass . You can also swing up to ride the Alpine Slide, ZipRider or Alpine Coaster and pick up your season pass right at our Resort Services Office, which is open daily.
One additional thing reminding me that winter is on the way is the fact that our summer improvements are really picking up steam (they better by now, I know). We're currently scheduled to fly towers for Crescent Lift on Monday, they started in on this yesterday, but the helicopter had something come up and Monday is the next time they could be ready.
Here are some pix from the premiere (from 8/26), our Mid-Mountain Lodge renovation project (from 8/27) as well as a few more helicopter photos (from 9/4):
