SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - The snow, while it has caused problems, has also caused a lot of people to smile.

ABC 4 caught up with people doing all sorts of fun things. The snow is good for families enjoying the Christmas Holiday.

Flat Iron Mesa in Sandy sports a hill so steep it sends sledders out of control, but don't worry there is plenty of space to wipe out. "Best part of sledding?" asked ABC 4's Noah Bond. "Falling and hurting yourself," Louie Espinoza replied. He's joking. No one was hurt.

With snow accumulations forecast between four and eight inches along Wasatch Valley's fun lovers are living it up.

Moving east into Sandy ABC 4 found a couple enjoying a wintry walk with their dog.

"We love the snow. We think it's very Christmassy," said Charlotte Cockman.

The couple was quick to share they're in their 80's, but they each still have a fun in the snow.

"We just love snow," said William Cockman. "What's the best part of the snow," Bond asked. William replied,"Skiing we go up two or three (times a week) when it's nice."

Moving northeast into the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon ABC 4 found snow blanketing the benches with between eight and 12 inches of snow and a foot or more will blanket the mountains before this storm subsides.

"When your riding through the powder it's just flawless you know your just cruising and there's nothing better than that felling," said Tyson Henderson who just finished skiing Brighton Ski Resort.

The snowfall should stop falling by around 7:00 p.m. Thursday.
