SALT LAKE CITY -- The snowstorm might make driving difficult around the Wasatch front, but ski and snowboard rental shops say they wish we could have more days like Wednesday.

Mark Turner is the manager at the Salt Lake City downtown Ski N' See. He couldn't be happier with the snowfall.

"We love it. It's the best thing we could hope for," Turner says. "Especially this year we just have been kind of lacking in snowstorms."

He says business looks to be improving over last year, which was a rough year because of the economic downturn.

He says, "Reservations for skis and from what we hear with hotels and the resorts, it seems to be pretty promising so far."

Turner says in his industry, they wish we could get a snowstorm at least once a week to keep business at its best.

He says typically they see the effects of a storm the day after as people rush up the slopes to hit the fresh powder.
