You may want to start with mentioning UTC-7 rather than Mountain, as
outside of the Americas, probably only EST and PST are memorable (if that).
Heck, even living in the US, I have to think about Central vs. Mountain
and fallback to old network programming messages like "ER, at 10pm Eastern
9pm Central and Pacific" although these days, they've even shortened that
to just mention Eastern and Pacific..

Not to mention even in the US we're quirky about when we observe
(if we do) Daylight Saving Time, and how our observance matches that
of the rest of the world, which makes using UTC offsets that much
more important.
