While most people see Labor Day weekend as an opportunity to relax and enjoy a cookout, we here at Park City Mountain Resort see Labor Day as a sign that Winter is almost here and its time to kick things into high gear. This past weekend we were out and about in Salt Lake and Park City spreading the cheer of Winter. We sold 2011-2012 season passes at Sniagrab (don't forget prices increase after Sept. 15th), cheered on Ski Utah's Skootch 'n Dash, made progress on the installation of the new 3 Kings chairlift, answered questions at Park Silly Sunday Market and my personal favorite - made a float and participated in the Miner's Day Parade on Park City's Main Street.
Check out the photos below to see all the action!

Originally from the Pocono’s of Pennsylvania, Travis found his way to Park City three years ago and is now our grooming manager. When not in snowcat you can find him skiing or snowmobiling in the Utah backcountry or enjoying the skiing here at Park City Mountain Resort.
