Enjoy An Adventurous President's Day Weekend

Our best wishes go out to people in the Southern and Eastern portions of American who are battling cold and storm.

In Utah, we are enjoying amazingly mild weather - perfect for travel and all kinds of outdoor adventure.

Ski & Ride
Ski conditions are superb at Utah resorts. Recent storms have dumped plenty of powder, and it looks like we may get fresh snow on Monday. Presidents Day is always a prime day to ski Utah.

Sowmobile
Don't forget about snowmobiling and other winter sports. KSL.com has this excellent report about snowmobiling along Hwy 150 and along the North Slope of the Uinta Mountains.

(Avalanche danger remains high in the backcountry. Take care if you venture off the groomed trails. View the conditions report provided by the Utah Avalanche Center.)

National Parks
Remember, there will be no entrance fee charged this weekend at National Parks and other properties managed by the U.S. Park Service. 2014 free-entrance days are listed below.
  • January 20 - Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • February 15-17 - Presidents Day weekend
  • April 19-20 - Opening weekend of National Park Week
  • August 25 - National Park Service Birthday
  • September 27 - National Public Lands Day
  • November 11 - Veterans Day
Spring is now taking hold in Zion Park and the St. George area. That area has the lowest elevation in Utah and so winters are short. StGeorgeUtah.com has this interesting article about early spring opportunities in Zion Park.

See our events calendar for information about events wherever you will be traveling.
