Steve Griffin | The Salt Lake Tribune A skier rides the Skyline Double Chair ski lift as fog and snow blanket the mountain top during opening day at Eagle Point ski resort above Beaver on Dec. 15, 2010. Formerly referred to as Mt. Holly resort, attorneys for imprisoned businessman Marc Sessions Jenson allege then-Attorney General Mark Shurtleff and current Attorney General John Swallow tried to "shake down" Jenson for a stake in the development.

Properly waxing your skis or snowboard can add to your fun on the slopes.

Especially if the snow industry geniuses figure out a wax that levitates skis and boards over sagebrush and mud.

Ha-ha, seriously—REI experts will lead a workshop on the basics of waxing, including base preparation, structure, major and minor repair, and stone grinding.

Tonight at 7 p.m., at REI, 3285 E. 3300 South, Salt Lake City. www.rei.com/saltlakecity

Ominously, Weber State is showing two films tomorrow night at 7 p.m. addressing climate change’s impact on winter sports: “Generations: A Skiers and Snowboarders Perspective on Climate Change‚“ and “Breaking Trail,” in the Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater.
