Construction Update

> From January 10th forward:

Snowy conditions made excavation and travel to the dumpsite difficult and work could not be completed on the following days: Jan. 10, 13, 16, 18, 19, 20, 30, 31, Feb. 1, 2, 3,

> Week of February 6-10

The weather was excellent. Excavation took place everyday and material was hauled to the dumpsite. A new post was installed for the webcams. Wasatch County was contacted twice this week regarding the progress of the building permit.

> Week of February 13-17

Two of the five days work could not be completed due to snowy conditions on the road to the dumpsite. Once the weather cleared, two new signs were installed on the lot near the ski run and roadside announcing the future site of the SKI Mag Dream Home. Friday the plan review was received by Wasatch County and sent to an engineer peer review. Footings are scheduled for the first part of the week of February 20th, at the same time the plans are expected to be returned from the engineer peer review.
