Back to the snow

We have returned to Park City, ready to settle into our new house and to get in some good skiing. Unfortunately, even though we had snow back in September, October and November brought almost no snow. Life works out though. Between Thursday night and Sunday morning, we got between 18 and 24 inches at the house and about 30 inches on the mountains.

This is the deck on our new house. As you can see, the snow is piling up and coming down hard.



Once the storm left, we had a sunny view looking down into Park City and out at Deer Valley.



Our house, with the snow-laden Gambel Oaks behind.



To combat the deep snow, you need a deep snow blower. Ours is pretty serious.



Snow just wouldn't be the same without a game of Where's Waldog? Double-click on the picture to see the bigger version.



You can't run through chest deep snow, so every step is actually a leap.



But what goes up, must come down. Jasper spent a lot of his time buried deep.



Finally, a charging dog that looks too much like Kujo.



The saying would go something like: You can take the dog out of the snow, but you can't take the snow out of the dog. This doesn't work though. We have a really tough time taking the dog out of the snow.
