This question came from one of my teachers yesterday:

When I insert my Google calendar to the Google site I’m making, all the times are Pacific Time Zone.  My original calendar settings are Mountain Time Zone.  It’s only when I insert it to my website?

Wow… I think I have a solution, but I don’t think I could have ever found it by digging around myself – I had to scour the Google Sites Help Pages. There is a magic ‘User Settings’ page somewhere within Google Sites where you can set the time zone for your site. My calendars were not displaying correctly either – and this fixed it for me.

Here’s the fix: Once you are logged into your site, open up a new window/tab in your browser and head to this page:

Once there, choose your correct time zone – for Utah it would be GMT -7:00 – Denver or Boise option (which one probably does not matter as long as you don’t choose the Phoenix one since they don’t observe Daylight Savings as we do). Save your settings and refresh your calendar page and hopefully the issue will be gone.

Thanks for the message. I gave up a while ago on trying to solve this problem – now we all know. 😀
