WOLF MOUNTAIN ANNOUNCES
FRIDAY FAMILY CONCERT SERIES AT WOLF MOUNTAIN

Utah Symphony Featured in Pops format

(Eden, UT)  Wolf Mountain has announced their first summer concert series, to be entitled: “Family Friday Concert in the Mountains.”  General Manger Bill Cox commented “In keeping with our family friendly focus, our music series will encompass events the whole family can enjoy together in an affordable evening of fun.”

The highlight of the 2006 series will be the Utah Symphony concert scheduled for July 14th. “When Wolf Mountain approached us about a performance, we were just thrilled, as it has always been a goal of ours to bring symphony to the Upper Ogden Valley.  So many of our patrons and supporters live in the Valley.” commented Sharon MacFarlane, Executive Director of the Ogden Symphony Ballet Association. “When we brought up a few of the key musicians to view the site, they were thrilled, it truly is perfect! The location on the western edge of the Valley will deliver cool weather in the evenings which the artists just love, since they’ll be out of the sun by about 6:30p.m.  The theme of the concert will be a Pops type performance, which is ideal fitting for the outdoor setting and family focus,” she commented.

The sponsors and underwriters for the series are Eagles Landing at Wolf Creek Resort and Bank of Utah. Eagles Landing is a new residential community just south of Wolf Creek that will include 9 holes of golf that will be incorporated into the existing course. Howard Schmidt, Developer, commented “We are a very civic minded company and I personally am passionate about music and especially  the symphony. We believe in giving back to the communities where we do business and this seemed a perfect marriage.” Howard is well invested into the area as he also owns the Canyon View apartment complex at the mouth of Ogden Canyon.

“Our overall vision of being a family friendly resort is further enhanced by this series” commented Steve Roberts, Managing Member of Wolf Creek Resort, which owns Wolf Mountain. “Our programs will be such that everyone feels comfortable, from a 4 year old child to grandma and grandpa, all sharing the same blanket.”

Ski Lodge Roofing Techniques

Ski-lodge ideas are so crazy. Would you like your house to have an evocative look that leaves every visitor’s mouth wide open? We all desire a fancy life: beautiful house, nice car in a nice garage and so on. The beauty of your mansion, your bungalow is emphasized by the look of the roof. Ski-lodge is here to make sure that your dream comes true. We deal in creative roofing like: gable roof, mountain or hip roof, mansard, gambrel flat tops, butterfly roof, dome roof and curved roof top. These are not the only designs; ski-lodge will always come up with a creative design for your house, depending on the type and location of your house. Let’s have a look on these types of roofs for today.

Gable Roof

gabled-roof-ski-lodge
The Gabled Rooftop seen here is probably the most common with ski lodges.

There are several categories of gables roof tops namely: open gables, box gables and Dutch gables. Gable roofs are mainly symmetrical; for instance, divide the roof into two parts, the right will look alike with the left. This is the most common roof serviced by residential roofers.

This is the best in highlands; it’s best in rainy areas. The only problem hitting this type of roof top is- it is easily blown away by wind if not well fitted.

Mountain Hip Roof Tops

Hip roof top is more of an advanced gable roof top; it’s unique in that there are several gable roofs crossed to form the pattern. Additional construction materials make it more expensive.

Mansard Roofing

This is a cap like roof top you will not be wrong calling it a French roof too. It is four sided and properly fits in windy places since they cannot be easily blown by the wind. This type of roofing makes your house look big hence create more room for your artworks and aesthetics.

Gambrel Flat Tops

Gambrel and mansard can make a good look alike; the difference comes in that gambrel flat top has two sides while the mansard has for sides. However, they are weaker than the mansards in terms of wind endurance.

Butterfly roof top

From the name itself, I’m sure you already have a clue to the look; the roof top look like a flying butterfly. The roofs are lifted at the ends forming a V-shape. Water is collected at the center of the house and drained by the gutters. These roof tops helps create a large view and space for your window, allowing room for illumination. The main problem is that the drainage system requires more cost of maintenance; to prevent water clogging.

Dome roofs and Curved roof tops

These are the most modern techniques in the urban areas and in the architects’ manuals. They are very beautiful creating a nice exterior view. Moreover, they are easily maintained and create a nice interior view of your office and homes. Disadvantages are always there to be solved, these types of roof tops are very expensive to install despite that they are easily maintained.

 

 

 

 

Strategic Tree Removal for Ski Course Design

Trees are important to our environment because they provide us with shade and oxygen; they are home to many animals, birds and insects. They also add an incredible beauty to the environment. However, removing some trees from the landscape for ski resort design also comes with some benefits. For instance, many large and old trees may cause problems for property owners. In regards to that, here are some reasons why tree removal for ski resort design is important.

Aesthetics

Big trees are certainly beautiful, but some people don’t like staying or spending their time in structures shrouded in shade. A good ski resort should have a better view of the natural surroundings. This means that overgrown branches or unsightly trees can impede your view of the natural surroundings. Another unfortunate situation is that big trees or overgrown branches can also block beautiful views, which would otherwise be clearly seen from the Ski resort and this can decrease its value as well. Moreover, overgrown and large trees shed many leaves during autumn and this can create a mess around the ski resort. In this case, the importance of tree removal for ski resort design is that it helps to restore views and reduce mess.

Safety

One of the obvious reasons for considering tree removal for ski resort design is that some big trees are very dangerous. For instance, if some trees in your property are overgrown and old, there could possibly be weak and unhealthy branches on them. This makes them susceptible to weather and storm damage. Dead branches and old trees fall very easily and are a safety hazard, so it’s important to have them professionally removed so that your property and people living around are safe. Falling branches or trees can cause serious damage to the property and even injure people nearby. Therefore, removing old trees and trimming others around the ski resort area is very important because it can alleviate such risk.

Improved Curb Appeal and Clear Space

Too much shade or unattractive trees can really undermine the curb appeal of the ski resort. Judicious tree removal or pruning can greatly improve the look and value of the environment. In addition, removing some trees to add shed, or any other structure can also enhance the quality of life while adding value to the property.

Overgrown Roots Are Dangerous To the Driveway, Sidewalk, or Foundation

In some cases, an overgrown or large tree can damage the structural integrity of a nearby building. Big roots may also frown into the base of the building, weakening its foundation and structure gradually. This is because the root zone of a tree can sometimes be enormous and it can impair and lift concrete structures on the ski resort design as it grows, resulting in inestimable damage. Big trees can also have a negative impact on electricity and sewer lines. This can make the ski resort area unsafe and even decrease its value.

When it comes to tree removal for ski resort design, as a property owner, you should never compromise the safety and having a better view. Consider hiring professional tree removal service (such as this) for advice and to do the job in order to realize the importance of removing or pruning trees for ski report purposes.
