This time of year we tend to think a little more about all we are thankful for. Some years we are thankful for an abundance of snow, and other years we find gratitude elsewhere. This year, we have yet to celebrate the bounty of snow we know will come our way, but that doesn’t lessen our gratitude as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches.


As we wait for snow to head our way, we are finding ways to give back to the community that has given us so much over the years. This Thanksgiving holiday, our employees will be providing breakfast for families whose children have life-threatening illness and are staying at the Salt Lake City Ronald McDonald House. Employees, led by Chef Tyler, will prepare and serve breakfast to these families.

Of course, we’d prefer to be skiing this Thanksgiving holiday, but we are keeping our heads up. The snow will come; in fact, the forecast looks better and better each day. We have a lot to be thankful for and would love to see you as we all prepare for the season to begin.
