2017 Utah ski season only a few weeks away

The air is freezing, and the snow guns are firing. Ski season in Utah is only a few weeks away! After a big snowstorm in September got skiers and snowboarders excited, summer returned and we got back on our mountain bikes. But a early November storm dropped a healthy amount of snow in Northern Utah. Beaver Mountain near Logan reported 20″. More snow and cold temperatures are on the way, and snow guns are going full force. As a result, the 2017 Utah ski season is only a few weeks away.
