Park City Spring Happenings

Park City is the ideal place to spend Spring. Between fun spring-themed events hosted at our world-class ski resorts and the innumerable cultural offerings in town, there’s something for every individual. In the past few weeks, we have been treated to the Annual Pond-Skimming competition at the Canyons, the US Freestyle Championships at Deer Valley, and over two feet of new snow! Check-out our recaps of these fun happenings, and reference our Calendar of Events for information on Park City’s many upcoming events.

Olympians, Hannah Kearney, Brad Wilson, and Ashley Caldwell, were among the competitors and put forth excellent runs.
