  1. Park City on the Wild Side!

Well, it’s a beautiful snowy day here in Park City, Utah! Driving in to town this morning, it looked as if someone had dusted the trees, buildings, and homes on Main Street with powdered sugar – enchanting, to say the least! Hopefully you’re here in Park City on vacation, or at least headed this way, so that you might enjoy all of this new, fresh powder Mother Nature has gifted us with! As if the new fresh snow wasn’t enough, there are loads of events to entertain and delight you during your visit to Park City.

Have you heard of the pop-up restaurant trend that is sweeping the nation? During the Sundance Film Successful, a very successful “gorilla restaurant” showed up on the scene, and it was called the Mist Project. Now, beginning March 30 through the 31st, the project will offer cooking classes called “Secrets of the Mist”. The next stop for the famous culinary creations of Mist? Your dining room table! Chef Gavin Baker will share the secrets behind some of the most popular dishes he prepared at his pop-up dining experience, including the Scallop, Apple Granita and Duck Risotto courses. Chef Baker intended The Mist Project to connect regions and people to their indigenous foods, while providing an unparalleled dining experience popping up in temporary and strategic locations.

One of the biggest weekends of the entire ski season is fast upon us, Pond Skimming at Canyons Ski resort happens March 24th, followed by a rockin’ concert at the resort village center. This is the weekend locals and visitors alike wait for – it means spring is here, and we celebrate its arrival , along with the completion of another amazing ski season, by hucking ourselves across a frigid pond dressed in absolutely ridiculous costumes! The Pond Skimming event takes place at the top of the gondola, just steps from Red Pine Lodge. Not to worry if you don’t plan on skiing or riding, spectator tickets for the gondola are available. This tradition is a must-see during your Park City vacation! Its canyons most popular party of the year! Contestants must dress in costume, the crazier, the better, and then attempt to cross a 100-foot pond on either skis or a snowboard. Contestants must be 10 years of age or older to enter. After the insanity on the hill winds down, head back down on the gondola, or ski on down to the resort village for a free concert. This year, Little Feat will be performing beginning at 3PM. But that’s not all! The Canyons is offering free concerts throughout the week that are free to the public. Check out www.canyonsresort.com for concert schedules and Pond Skimming information.
