Slack Season


Once again we find ourselves in Park City, Utah during slack season – that elusive window between the end of ski season and Memorial Day weekend.

In many ways the town is turning over – winding down most, but not all ski runs, while simultaneously beginning to look ahead towards spring.

It’s an odd time to visit a resort town I suppose.  It’s kind of like when you visit a restaurant late in the morning, after it has run out of most breakfast menu items, but isn’t yet fully ready for the lunch crowds.

Similarly, the cadence here feels a bit out of rhythm.  A decent number of business are temporarily closed, the mountain still holds lots of snow but no one is skiing, and tourist crowds are less than expected.  The whole place has a feeling of being in between last week and next week while overlooking the present.

Nevertheless, we still seem to enjoy visiting this area during slack and in particular the largely vacant Jordanelle State Park campground.

    That is a beautiful view, children. Relax, there is more to life than increasing its speed.

    Hello there! Sorry for the random question, but I saw a pic of the roof of your trailer and wondered what solar/battery/inverter system you had (and who installed it). Thanks for any info you can provide. -Eric
