You Can Ski And Golf Right Now In Salt Lake City

The weather today was beautiful - sunny and delightfully warm - at least down in our valleys. Perfect golf weather, and most of most Utah courses are still open with good conditions.

Two of our ski resorts opened today and more will open during the next couple weeks. Brighton and Solitude opened their gates and started up their lifts, officially opening our ski season. That comes after a series of cold, winter-like storms dumped on the high country.

That's fall for you in Utah.

You can ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon during the deal of winter in southern Utah, with Brian Head offering very good downhill skiing, just a short distance away from the famous St. George-area golf courses. But having good ski and golf conditions simultaneously is a rare treat in northern Utah. We'll enjoy it while we can.

This is the perfect time of year for all kinds of adveventures. Most of our national parks are located at lower elevations where the weather is mild. Conditions are very good for hiking, biking, camping and other adventures.

Fishing is also exceptionally good right now at Lake Powell, Strawberry Reservoir and many other waters.

Conditions will change drastically during the next few weeks, as cold weather sets in. For now, I'm loving it.
