When it comes time to clean and store ski gear, your West Valley City movers know that the task is one spring cleaning chore you may be dreading. Do not just throw your snow gear into a closet and call it a day. All My Sons Moving & Storage offers a few tips for you to follow that can help you clean and store ski gear so it is good as new next winter.

Make sure everything is completely dry, especially when it comes to the metal edges.

Check your pockets before storing your outerwear. There may be small items like cash, French fries, or even car keys left inside your jackets and pants. In order to properly clean and store ski gear, your West Valley City movers suggests checking every single pocket thoroughly.

Wash your outerwear. Aside from making sure your pockets are empty, the outside of ski jackets and pants get dirty! If left unwashed, the dirt and bacteria can degrade the waterproofing and fabric of your snow gear.

Wipe down your goggles with a soft lens cloth or the soft bag that they came in. Do not use a tissue, paper towel, or the edge of your shirt. Use eyeglass cleaning solution to get the extra, hard to buff spots.

Use mild soap and a sponge to clean your skis properly. You can get any hardened dirt this way. Make sure you wipe them completely dry before you store them. Apply wax to increase the lifespan of your skis.

Lace or buckle your boots so they do not warp while in storage.

If you follow these tips from your West Valley City movers at All My Sons, life will be a breeze when it comes time to clean and store ski gear.

Everyone knows that going home to see your family for the holidays can be a stressful experience. There is nothing quite like sitting around a table with the people you grew up with, everyone stressed about the holidays, the new additions of husbands and wives, new babies, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. If you are moving to Salt Lake City before the holidays, here are some family dinner games for the holiday season to play at the dinner table and have fun.

Holiday Sticker Stalker. The goal is simple; get rid of your sticker sheet. Every guest gets a sheet of 10-15 stickers, and throughout the night you must get rid of all of them by putting them on people without them noticing. If someone notices, they get to put a sticker on you. It is very simple, but can get pretty competitive and kind of funny.

Head’s Up. This family dinner game for the holiday season is one that you can buy on your phone, and it is so much fun. You break up into teams, and each team takes turns having a person hold the phone on their forehead. If you have a phone on your forehead, it will say a word or a phrase and your teammates will give you clues so you can guess it is. The goal is to get as many as you can within a minute. And then the other team takes a turn. It’s a great game, and fun for the whole family, especially when you need to relax from moving to Salt Lake City.

These are just two of the numerous games to play this holiday season in Salt Lake City.

Every year, Salt Lake City hosts the EVE WinterFest, a New Year’s celebration that rings in the New Year downtown. The 2016 EVE WinterFest celebration will be expanded from three days to six, so you can be sure to catch a day of it after moving to Salt Lake City. When it came to be eight years ago, the goal was to make the event a week-long experience, so the expansion to six days is getting a step closer to that initial goal.

This year, festivities will run December 26-31, with the big event being the ball drop on New Year’s Eve. The 2016 EVE WinterFest festivities will take place in 15 theatres, museums, and other venues, including multiple new venues this year.

The ball drop that takes place happens at the Salt Palace Convention Center’s south plaza, and has the biggest disco ball in the country. With a circumference of more than 60 feet, and weighing more than 2,400 pounds, it is massive and is the one event of the week that, after moving to Salt Lake City, you and your family should make sure to make it to since the entire city will be there celebrating.

The event is expecting to sell all of its 25,000 tickets this year. Part of the reason is that Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, meaning students have an entire week off before New Year’s Eve, and this event is fun for the whole family; not to mention the tickets are affordable.

This event is great for the whole family, and you can ring in the New Year with 25,000 of your Kansas City neighbors. If you are on the hunt for plans for New Year’s Eve, this is the place you want to be.

For the first time this year, Salt Lake City hosted a Human Rights Day Celebration that was free to the public. Hosted by the Mayor’s Office of Diversity & Human Rights and the Salt Lake City Human Rights Commission. This event took place to commemorate the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 by the United Nations.

This year, the theme of the event was the celebration of Indigenous populations, inspired by the recent events in North Dakota. Mayor Jackie Biskupski said that the goal of the event was to bring communities together and reaffirm Salt Lake City’s commitment to human rights, which is something that Salt Lake City movers and locals are proud of.

At the event, the Salt Lake City Human Rights Commission presented the 2016 Human Rights Award to Raymond Uno, who during World War II was interred in Wyoming, and since has worked as a District Court Judge and advocate for human rights.

Also at this event, the Organization Award for 2016 was given to The Inn Between, which is a non-profit facility for homeless people that provides hospice care to terminally ill patients.

The adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 by the General Assembly was groundbreaking, as for the first time an international standard was set for basic rights for all people, and standards to protect these rights for all people.

Salt Lake City’s dedication to human rights can be seen by its work to end homelessness in Utah, and you can expect to see your local Salt Lake City movers taking part in the celebrations and efforts each year.

All My Sons Salt Lake City moving company has had three decades of experience moving people in and out of Salt Lake City. Along the way, we have come across many breath taking and bizarre Utah Landmarks that visitors and new residents shouldn’t miss.

The Four Corners

This monument marks the quadripoint where Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet. It is the only point in the country where four states come together.

The Spiral Jetty

The Spiral Jetty at Great Salt Lake was constructed in 1970. Due to weather changes, the spiral constantly experiences submersion and re-emergence, changing colors, and changing light.

The Up House

Disney and Pixar’s movie UP featured a colorful quaint house that one Utah construction company loved so much they decided to recreate it in the city of Herriman. The house exactly matches the one featured in the movie, with pink, green, and yellow colors painted on the front.

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park

Of all Utah landmarks, this is a favorite of All My Son’s Salt Lake City moving company. The park features coral sand dunes beside red sandstone cliffs. Wind changes the appearance, so each time you visit you’ll experience different breathtaking views.

Kennecott Utah Copper Mine

This Utah landmark is located 28 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, and is the second largest copper producer in the US. The visitors center offers a view of a three-quarter mile deep canyon where visitors can watch operation on the mine. Check out giant electric shovels and two story trucks haul 300 tons of rock.

It might surprise some that Salt Lake City is at the forefront of helping to end homelessness in the United States. In 2015 NPR reported that Utah had reduced its homeless population by 91%, and Salt Lake City was a major factor in that. As the holiday season is growing near, and temperatures are dropping, what better a time for the Mayor of Salt Lake City to announce that it will be opening four new homeless shelters, taking yet another step towards ending homelessness.

Because Salt Lake City is a doing so well with ending this chronic problem, many homeless people are moving to Salt Lake City as a way to get help and have access to resources. The model that is used is called Housing First, which allows people to get into housing communities with few questions asked, and get help once they are in, as opposed to past models that required proof of sobriety before being admitted.

Homelessness is a problem that is prevalent across the United States. As a nation that has the ability to help and house all that are homeless, many question why we do not. Some are under the impression, incorrectly, that housing homeless and implementing programs similar to that in Salt Lake City cost taxpayers more than people living on the streets. This is in fact not true. Because of emergency room visits and jail time, taxpayers actually pay more when people are living on the streets, as opposed to in housing communities similar to those in Salt Lake City.

As the holiday season approaches, let us all take note from Salt Lake City, and be generous to those in need! If you are moving to Salt Lake City and would like to get involved, ask your local community what their initiatives are that you can volunteer for.

If you have just moved to Salt Lake City, you may be concerned with how to keep your kids entertained during holiday break. Fear not! All My Sons Moving & Storage is here to help you come up with some things for kids to do to keep them off the couch! It is important for young ones to stay active instead of with their face in a video game after moving to Salt Lake City and enjoying their first holiday break.

1.Play outside with family visiting. If you are going to have family in town this weekend, make sure to embrace bonding! Playing games outside and making some memories with the people you do not see regularly is a great way for them to bond after not seeing them for a while.

2. Head to Hogle Zoo! This is a must do after moving to Salt Lake City. After Thanksgiving, the zoo lights up nightly with holiday cheer to help you embrace the season. Your kids will love to see all of the animals during the day, and then get into the holiday spirit in the evening, so make sure to go right before sundown to be able to see the zoo transition to night with decorative lights.

3. Head to a Jazz game! Nothing will keep your children more excited then a fun night at a NBA game! The Jazz play the L.A. Clippers the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This is a great way to embrace moving to Salt Lake City, have fun with your kids during holiday break, and build a love for the local sports teams.

Keep your kids entertained with these fun things for kids to do during holiday break after moving to Salt Lake City. If you have not moved yet, call All My Sons Salt Lake City to lend you a helping hand!

If you are having a large family gathering, consider adding name cards to your table in a fun and unique way. If you are having extended family and opening your doors to friends you may have some people that are not as familiar with others as some may be. Save everyone the minute of that awkward “Where do I sit?” phase and take in this idea from your Salt Lake City movers.

Pinecones. Place a name card through the bridges of a pinecone. This is a fun, festive, and fast way to create the perfect Thanksgiving addition to your table.

Maple leaves. Collect some big, full sized maple leaves. Spray paint them gold. With another colored metallic marker, write your guests’ names. Lay the leaf on a napkin on each guest’s plate to create a classy and elegant name card.

Flowers. Instead of a name card, take one of Salt Lake City movers’ favorite ideas and use a flower. You can use a piece of twine to attach the paper with your guest’s name to the stem. This idea is festive and will add a beautiful element to your table. After your meal, collect all of the flowers and put them in a vase.

Feathers. Last but not least, head to the craft store and purchase some faux turkey feathers. Use the same technique as the flowers. A faux turkey feather will add just the right amount of festivity to your Thanksgiving table! Kids love to play with the feathers after dinner as well!
