Visiting SLC & Northern Utah

Northern Utah looks forward to spring skiing. With a mild 2012 winter hopes are high for big snow to fill the spring ski season. Park City, off Interstate 80, 30 minutes east of Salt Lake City, is a charming resort town. The former silver-mining town is now a mecca for winter recreation. Park City Mountain Resort is located right in downtown Park City, with Deer Valley Resort and the Canyons nearby – three resorts with world-class terrain to fill your vacation itinerary. Just in case snowfall lags, Park City and surrounding resorts offer a variety of spring events. The slopes close mid-April, but the fun continues year round.

Join the fun at the Canyons for the 5th Annual Spring Gruv featuring 10 days of skiing, riding, competition and celebrations. Concerts by Little Feat, John Brown’s Body and Martin Sexton add to the spirit while the Pond Skimming competition and Red Bull Schlittentag events. Get your gruv on this spring in PC.

There’s nothing like a sunny day of spring skiing – Deer Valley’s bikini beach is the place to see and be seen while enjoying the sun and snow. Stop for lunch at Silver Lake Lodge and join the crowd on the snow covered lawn watching skiers on Bald Eagle Mountain. It may get warm, be sure to layer so you can unzip.

Hockey fans don’t miss the 2012 Muddy Puck Spring Fling. Hosted by the Park City Predators women’s hockey team, muddy puck is a coed hockey tournament for novice to elite players. The 2012 tournament is April 19 through the 22 at Park City Ice Arena on Gilmore Way. Remember its equal opportunity – players on the ice must be equal numbers of men and women.

After Salt Lake City and surrounding resort areas hosted the winter Olympics, curling became a part of northern Utah winter culture. The Park City Curling Club and the Odgen Curling Club now host the Utah Rocky Mountain Bonspiel. The 2012 Bonspiel is May 18 through the 20 at the Park City Ice Arena and Sports Complex. Its guaranteed fun with a 3 game guarantee, banquet, auction and prizes – looks like curling is moving quickly into the lower 48.

Well known as the home of the Sundance Film Festival, Park City is infused with film and film related events. The new Park City Film Music Festival is another independent film festival focused on film music. Hosted in Park City and Salt Lake City, the 2012 festival is May 25 through June 3. Events include a film music competition, screenings and seminars and workshops, along with social mixers where guests mix with composers and film industry professionals. Screening venues include Santy Auditorium, the Prospector Hotel Theatre and the Egyptian Theatre – all within reasonable walking distance from each other.
