The warmer weather is certainly giving everyone in Park City, Utah a dose of spring fever! Although we know there will be more snow to come, it sure is nice to head out in to the sunshine and enjoy a great spring ski, a walk on Main Street, or many of the other activities that are occurring out and about town. I know it’s tough to tear yourself away from your amazing luxury vacation rental; however, if you do decide to venture out after a day of skiing in the soft spring snow, there are a ton of great activities occurring in Park City for the Easter holiday this week!
The Easter Holiday is upon us this weekend, and Park City Mountain resort has an Easter Egg Hunt for the grown-ups! The annual “Hunt for the Golden Egg” takes place all around the resort with two golden eggs at stake. What’s in it for you if you find a Golden Egg? A 2012/2013 Season Pass to Park City Mountain Resort! To make the pot even sweeter, there are two of these eggs hidden somewhere on the resort. Clues as to the location of the Golden Eggs can be found on Park City Mountain resort’s Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/parkcitymountainresort , or on their website, www.parkcitymountain.com . Non-golden eggs will also be placed throughout the resort, and those eggs will contain a variety of additional great prizes! You could win yourself 2012 activities passes, or 2012/13 lift passes – not a bad deal! Other events occurring on Easter include a special egg hunt for the kids, a visit from the Easter Bunny himself, and yummy hot chocolate and coffee to keep you energized for that egg hunt! The Easter Bunny will be in the resort’s Kid’s Korral beginning at 9AM and will “hoppily” visit with kids 6 years of age and under.
The Easter Bunny will also be making an appearance at Deer Valley Resort on Easter Sunday as well. He’ll be hanging out at the Snow Park Lodge from 9AM-11AM. Deer Valley will also host a church service from 2PM-3PM at the Sunset Cabin located on Bald Mountain. The Easter Bunny is a busy guy this time of year, as he will also be making an appearance at Canyons resort on Easter Sunday for their annual Easter Egg Hunt festivities. The egg hunt begins at 11AM in the Resort Village. There will be two categories for the hunt; infant to 4 years old, and 5 years-10 years old. Participants should meet on the Umbrella Bar deck and bring along their own Easter basket to collect eggs in. Visit www.canyonsresort.com and www.deervalley.com for additional information.
Does all of that talk of Peter Cottontail and potential egg hunting make you thirsty for one of Park City’s finest cocktails? You’re in luck! On Wednesday, April 4th, the biannual Park City Cocktail contest will be taking place at Cisero’s. Beginning at 6:30PM, Park City’s finest mixologists will be creating their newest delicious cocktail concoctions in hopes that they will take over the “Official Summer Cocktail of Park City” title. The winter contest had Sky Blue’s bartender Cody Childers winning with his delicious Pommard drink – Yum! After a bartender wins his battle round with another bartender, the winning drink is available to purchase and sample. At the end, a champion is crowned and their drink will be offered at park City’s fine dining establishments throughout the summer. Find out more at www.parkcityrestaurants.com .
