Spring skiing in Park City is a great way to take advantage of a slower season but still get the benefits of our great skiing conditions. Visiting Park City in the spring time can provide some great deals on accommodation as well as some great local events like the ones listed below:
March 5th – 7th – The Jr. Olympics Nordic Ski Jumping Competition is taking place in Park City during this week and it is sure to be one of the Park City events that draw the biggest spectator crowd. Why not come out to help support these junior Olympic athletes and watch some great skiers in action!
March 8th – 10th- If you like wine, skiing and fundraisers than Red, White and Snow, the premier fundraiser for the National Ability Center is the Park City event for you this March! This three-day event celebrates some of America’s top chefs and vintners drawing both to Park City by offering a unique opportunity for them to mingle and share their expertise with some of the local and visiting skiers. The weekend is made up of a variety of wine tasting, dinners and skiing and culminates with a gala dinner and auction. You can register for the event at the Red, White & Snow website.
March 16th – April 7th – The Fox School of Wine Weekend Wine Series starts in March and continues through to April. This Park City event offers classes on Friday and Saturday nights from 6:15 to 7:00 pm. Each class is 45 minutes during which attendees will try 5 different types of wine, study the different aspects of the wine including: growing region, grape characteristics, wine labels and learn wine vocabulary. The class costs $25.00 a person and sells out quickly so we recommend signing up in advance! This is a fun way to learn a little more about wine (while tasting some great vintages) and expanding your wine vocabulary and knowledge.
