It's that time of year again, when the ski resorts in Park City close, but we are still getting amazing snow in the higher elevations. One option to enjoy the powder is to head over for a ski day at Brighton or Snowbird. Brighton typically stays open through the third week of April, while Snowbird will run as long as there is snow - for 2019 they will probably go into June. Driving to either Brighton or Snowbird is less than an hour from Park City and is a real treat since our PC resorts have been closed for a couple weeks.

Pink Park City

Pink Park City is the one day of the year for people to come together to ski or snowboard for a cause that hits home for most.

This cancer-fighting experience brings the community together in celebration and support of the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City. Participants register and solicit donations on their own personal fundraising page, with 100% of the donations go to fund cancer research.
