Spring Has Sprung and the wet will be on the run this weekend as Park City kicks off the end of the ski season. Beginning this coming weekend, March 26, the Canyons will be hosting a ten day celebration. Saturday will be a splash with the Canyons annual Pond Skimming contest. Go to www.thecanyons.com if you are interested in signing yourself up to skim across the 100ft. pond, or just to see what time the mayhem will start. Park City Mountain Resort will host the Queens Cup Open Saturday the 27th featuring the female phenoms of the skiing world going slopestyle and shredding it up. If you have no idea what I just said, just go check it out. I can promise that it will be ‘gnarly dude’! (www.parkcitymountain.com)
Who can think of springtime without thinking of a fuzzy bunny and chocolate eggs? At 9am sharp Easter morning Park City Mountain Resort will open the hill for their annual Easter egg frenzy. The kids corral will hold their own hunt for kids ages 6 and under, with free hot chocolate and coffee for the parents. Eggs hidden on first time are full of candy, and if you are lucky enough to find an egg higher on the mountain the rewards are sweet, (how does a 2010-2011 seasons pass sound?). And what are eggs without the bunny? Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort will both have the man, or bunny, himself skiing around all day.
So while some may be crying as their snow gradually gets slushier and seems to disappear by the minute, while others celebrate the warm weather and signs of grass and new buds peeking through, this time of year in Park City is a definite time to celebrate the season almost past and the season coming up.
