Fall 2020 “COVID-Style” has us loving the crisp mornings and lovely moderate temperatures.  The maples and oaks are past their peak while the golden hues of the aspens now take center stage.  

We never cease to be amazed at how well our community and businesses continue to pivot during this pandemic. We know you’ll find some fun surprises here, like the Shot Ski Home Edition, the Pumpkin Train, Halloween Lift Rides, and all the normal Ski Swap details. We’re now in our third season embracing these unexpected changes, and we’re surprisingly OK. Our real estate market continues to break records with no apparent end to the Urban Flight that is the underlying impetus. We’ll provide more insight on that news in our upcoming Third Quarter Market Pulse, due to you at the end of this month. 

The 16th Annual UGPG Thanksgiving Point Weigh-Off was September 26th, and this year’s first prize 

It was the largest pumpkin to be grown outside of a greenhouse and the second largest pumpkin ever grown in the state, event organizers said. The Utah Giant Pumpkin Growers recorded eight pumpkins in Utah over 1,000 pounds, setting a state record. Photo by Jim Seamons.winner was Mohamed Sadiq with his enormous pumpkin weighing in at 1,825 lbs.
