SALT LAKE CITY -- Snow is coming, and temperatures will stay cold all the way into the new year. But organizers for the downtown New Year's eve celebration say the weather won't change any of their plans.

The Downtown Alliance says it wants the snow for the three-day event, "Eve."

"We're hoping that the snow will clear out some of the smog that we're having and really kind of create a magical environment, that people will want to be downtown even more," says Danica Farley, spokeswoman for the Downtown Alliance.

Farley says the alliance also needs the white stuff for skiers and snowboarders on a three-story-high rail setup.

"We do live in Utah. We know it's winter. There's no bad weather, only bad gear," Farley says.

She says the alliance plans to have fires, hand-warmers and hot drinks available outside and plenty of indoor entertainment if party-goers can't handle the frigid temps anymore.
