Transcript for Exploring Utah as it reopens after the pandemic
We turn to the gorgeous state of Utah. It is, of course, the latest stop on our cross-country tour and from the picture-per sfekt slopes to the magnificent mountains Utah has something for everyone. "Gma's" ashan Singh is there now. How is it going? Good morning. Thank you so much for having me. This whole trip has felt like a dream. We're in snow canyon state park right now and still waiting for some of the sun to shine on the red tops behind me but we've been driving the state for the past couple of days and I've never seen anything like this. It's absolutely beautiful. The thing that impressed me the most is the people of Utah and their commitment to community. The sun is rising over Utah. And in this great state, the mountains are magnificent. The arches are towering and the powder is so fresh that the license plate boasts greatest snow on Earth. But the pandemic forced an early end to 2020 skiing. Leaving Adam Cole uncertain about the future. It was pure panic. There were just a lot of question marks. We didn't know what was next. Reporter: What came out of the pandemic was Utah's biggest ski season to date. This winter was very different. It was one of our most drawn out selling seasons, whole families were buying ski, boot, bindings, poles, helmets for their setup so they could ski 30, 40 days rather than renting their gear for a week. Reporter: Look where I am right now in park city mountain, the largest ski resort in the United States butt's not just about skiing. In the summertime it becomes a literal playground. People come here for hiking, mountain biking and, of course, to take in the gorgeous views. And just a few peaks away one of the sites for the 2002 winter olympics and now a training ground for olympic hopefuls. We're at Utah olympic park where people like you and me can get in on the ago. I'm about to try my hand at being an olympic bobsledder. Lets go. Let's rock. Ooh. Ooh! Whoo! That was incredible. next up, let's talk honey. Peter Summers from beezhives and honey, he brought more of them to homes than ever before. People were stuck at home so beehive is at home selling them bees and a hive setup, giving classes. Peter, Utah is called the beehive state. It's in the seal and the flag. What is it with the state and bees. All about community. It's about working together for a higher purpose. It's the real deal. Reporter: If you head south to the little purple store you'll find Randy ramsley who said that community made all the difference. Keep ahold. Don't let it get away from you. I'm not doing it right. Put this hand here. How are we doing? I know Mesa farms relies a lot on them for business. How did the past year affect The goats don't know anything about covid so they continued producing as they normally would so we had to find new outlets for our products and luckily the community pulled together and really stepped up and bought our product and we had a relationship with a really fine operation in Salt Lake City. They really stepped up and marketed our cheese nationally. Now we're coming out the other side and tourists are coming back. That's why we're saying -- "Rise & shine," Utah. Reporter: Guy, that baby goat that we met at Mesa farm, two weeks old, didn't even have a name yet so, of course, Randy and the team was kind enough to let us name her good morning. Love it. Ashan, we want to say welcome. We're so glad to have you. Talk about starting with a bang. Started with a bang. Really appreciate it. You sent us food. You got the memo. Had a ton of fun. Yes, yes, we have fresh honey, fresh goat cheese from Mesa farms and from peterz so, please, please enjoy. You got to go check out good We will, ashan. Thank you so much.
