It is official! HGTV chose Utah for their 2012 Dream Home location. River Meadows Ranch is located near Midway, Utah. It offers 39 lots ranging between 1.5 and 8 acres. With the majestic Wasatch Mountains in the back and the Provo River running through the development this area truly is a dream location. Midway offers many year-round outdoor activities. In the summer you can hit some balls at one of the 4 golf courses, fly fish, visit the water falls at Provo Canyon, hike at Sundance Resort or go boating at Jordanelle Reservoir. In the winter you can cross country ski at the Olympic Soldier Hollow stadium or hop on the nearby gondola to ski Deer Valley Resort.

River Meadows Ranch is located 20 minutes from Park City, Orem and 45 minutes from Salt Lake City.

I assisted HGTV in finding the location for their 2012 Dream Home and I would be honored if I can help you find yours too!

Park City 2010-2011: Second Best Ski Season Ever

According to Ski Utah, the ski season of 2010-11 was the best since 2007. The record snow fall attracted more than 4.2 million people to the 14 ski and snowboard resorts in Utah. Overall spending was up as well - people spent more money on lessons, rental equipment, food and drinks.

The Canyons has also seen a great return on their improvements around the resort. Caitlin Martz, spokesperson for Canyons Resort, said “Our many re-creation projects generated overwhelmingly positive responses from both destination visitors and locals and certainly helped enable Canyons to have a fantastic winter season. We look forward to continuing to build on this positive momentum next winter."

This winter we saw about 34 percent more snow than we did during the previous season. Resorts were able to extend their opening days and Snowbird is even planning on staying open until July 4th this year.
