With temperatures soaring into the 90's here in the East, the weather is putting an exclamation point on summer and many of the end of the season events and festivals that come with it. However, despite it being all "dog days of summer" here, snow is falling, and quite a bit of it, in other parts of the country. Jackson Hole Looks to be in mid-winter form already and I even saw a video of someone skiing waste deep pow at Alta this weekend. Not to be left out, Snowbasin resort has also been receiving a few flakes and which, if it continues, may make some of their fun, end of Summer events seem like more of an après ski party. Either way, snow or no snow, Snowbasin has upped their festival game all summer long especially with their weekly Blues, Brews and BBQ weekly concert series and there is no doubt their end of Summer events will send them into the winter season with a bang.
