With the new dusting of snow and lower temperatures on the Wasatch Back we thought you might like a little teaser of things to come.
Here are a few photos of yesterday’s first snow taken by Summit Sothebys’ photographer Rocky Maloney. You can see more of Rocky’s photos on his Facebook page. Rocky and Kyle, Summit Sotheby’s on staff photographers, are very talented and Team Schlopy is excited that their talents are helping to sell the Park City homes of Team Schlopy clients.

The first snow, in Park City, Utah, or any ski town for that matter, is a much anticipated lifting of a veil.

This beautiful photo of Park City’s iconic White Barn, from a friend’s Facebook page displays the thoughts of many. The caption accompanying the photo read “with sugar on top!” Showing many Parkite’s, true to their ski town nature, can live with the passing of the season.

Remember they can be hazardous, so first and foremost, let’s all be safe. Remember, “know before you go“. Visit the Utah Avalanche Center before going into the back country, take a class, and have the proper gear, be prepared.
