Business briefs for Saturday, Nov. 25
November 25, 2006
In an effort to convey the ultimate experience of skiing Utah’s Greatest Snow on Earth, Ski Utah has enlisted the expertise of local big mountain skier Kent Hyden to blog about his adventures this season. Hyden will ski all of Utah’s resorts and highlight their various features, including the best spots to find powder, terrain parks, tree skiing, groomed runs, dining, après-ski, backcountry access, the Ski Utah Interconnect Adventure Tour and much more. The blog will also showcase photos and video footage from his days on the slopes. Readers are encouraged to submit comments and questions.

Recycle old Dex phone books
Dex currently is distributing its Park City/Heber City directory, which means it’s time to recycle the outdated one. Last year, area residents recycled 12 tons of Dex phone books, which saved 198 trees, enough landfill space to handle a year’s worth of trash from five households and enough electricity to power five homes for a year. Since 2003, area residents have recycled 36 tons of Dex directories, which would stretch 10 miles if laid end-to-end.
Recycled phone books are used to make insulation, animal bedding, packaging, shipping trays for fruit and a variety of other items, including more phone books. Dex phone books contain up to 40 percent post-consumer recycled material.
Area residents can use the following recycling options:
Deer Valley, Park City and Snyderville Basin: Good Earth Recycling (garage, garageside or curbside).
