The snow has finally come, over 2 feet of it last night, and we had an amazing weekend of beautiful powder runs, with nobody here! Sundance is a great time to have the big storms come in as most of the Sundance crowd does not ski or snowboard. Its a great time for all of us Park City realtors to take a break from showing property and get some great runs in. Perfect that this Sundance weekend we got dumped on! There was well over 2 feet of fresh snow on McConkeys lift at Park City Mountain Resort, and I was there for first tracks. Once I headed down to go back to my Sotheby's real estate office, I passed the usual Silver Queen run to get down and found more great powder on the side of the groomed runs. For sure was an epic day, and so glad to see the snow arrive.  This should give us a great base and have us well prepared for the next storms to come. 

The resorts did quite well with these last sets of storms. Whenever I check the PCMR snow report, it always shows less snow than what they really have, because they get so much less at the base area as compared to what they get up top.  They average it all out so the number is always low.  Best is to always check out the snow report for Snowbird, because if PCMR says 12 inches, and Snowbird says 24, you know the upper areas of PCMR will be close to that same 24. If you are ever wondering how the conditions are, or where to go ski or board, simply give us a quick call, we'd love to share our local knowledge with you!




In the world of Park City real estate snow is crucial to everyone's success. From us as Park City realtors selling ski homes and condos, to our clients who own and rent out thier ski homes and ski condos. The slow start of the snow year was beginning to affect our busy selling season. Now that we have a good amount of snow, it should hopefully get things turning again. We'll still keep our fingers crossed in anticipation of many more storms. Today was just too much fun, and is another reminder of why owning property here is so great. If you live here you can take full advantage of every storm. If you own a second home here, you can watch the weather, and then come out as soon as we start getting in sight of a major storm system.
