Choose Your Adventure In Park City
Ski conditions are great right now at Utah's resorts and more snow is expected Thursday and during the coming weekend. We still have several weeks of good skiing ahead.
Metro.us has this interesting article about Park City, providing "insider tips" for skiers and non-skiers alike. The title for this post is taken from the article. We provide a couple excerpts below:
The snow is so powdery, you can blow it away with a kiss. The airport is only 35 minutes from the slopes, so you can be on your skis within hours of landing. And it’s home to dozens of Olympic athletes, including new gold medal snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg and silver medal skier Devin Logan.
But even if you aren’t an adrenaline junkie, there’s plenty to enjoy in this picturesque mountain town. From a surprising number of art galleries, as well as shopping and one of the best whiskey distilleries around, you won’t be bored.
The article gives specific recommendations on where to stay, where to eat and where to find adventure.
Spring At The Resorts
Meanwhile, resorts are scheduling spring specials and events. As the warms in March, ski conditions will start to deteriorate but there will still be plenty of opportunity for fun. For example, Canyons Resort hosts an annual Spring Grüv, offering free concerts and its very popular Pond Skimming Contest. Participants dress up, or dress down, and try to ski or snowboard across a pond of open water.
This year's Grüv will happen March 21-30. The video below shows some of the action.
