Park City Mountain New Year's Fireworks 

With the ski season off to a stellar start in Utah, Park City Mountain already has 100 trails open with packed powder conditions, thanks to 46-inches of snowfall already received. Now, that’s reason to celebrate! The Vail-owned resort has lined up a festive, 16-day Snowfest, beginning on December 22. A plethora of events offer wintertime fun for local and visiting families. Activities include live music during apres ski, the annual Torchlight Parade, holiday-themed crafts, and meet and greets with the resort’s avalanche dogs. And new this year is the First Friday Fireworks display each month of the ski season.
