Come for the winter and stay for the [short] summer

Well, folks, I'm in my third Park City summer, and let me tell you, this time of year is a bit of a rollercoaster for us Parkites. 🎒 It's mid-September, and that means a peculiar blend of excitement for the impending winter wonderland and a deep yearning for just a few more weeks of that sweet, sweet summer sun. β˜€οΈ

My car plays the role of the town crier, kindly reminding me in the morning that freezing road conditions are a possibility. But come afternoon, it's as if Mother Nature herself flips a switch, and we're back to experiencing the perfect fall day. πŸš—β„οΈπŸ‚

It's a season of mixed emotions, my friends. We know what's coming, and we've got those fond memories of epic winter adventures. β›·οΈπŸ‚β„οΈ But right now, the slopes are still looking so green, thanks to the generous rain. It feels like June out there, except for the leaves that are slowly changing color, gently reminding us that another season is about to bid farewell, and we'll soon be sporting our winter gear for the next eight months. 🌿🌨️

So, how do we "survive" this quirky transition? I put "survive" in quotes because, honestly, most of us who get to call Park City home feel incredibly lucky to be here. πŸ€

Here are some personal and quirky tips for my fellow year-round Park City pals to keep that summer spirit alive while bracing for winter's embrace:

1. Sweat It Out
