Waiting For Winter at Deer Valley Resort

The ski chairs are waiting for winter. #deervalleyresort #utahphotographer #skilift #skichair #fall

The chairs are in “ready position” to be secured  to the lifts.

Hiking in the fall is a great way to stay in shape while passing the time until winter comes and ski season starts.

What are you doing while waiting for winter?
