Splashing into Spring:
This past week the annual Spring Gruv took place at Canyons Resort, on Saturday they held their famous pond skimming competition.  It was a beautiful day with a great turn out.  Competitors donned crazy outfits and made a splash trying to reach the other side of the pond.

In spite of this winter being one of the driest and lowest snow years, it’s been an exceptional season. Overnight lodging and skier days do not appear to be down, with local businesses thriving and town being pleasantly busy all winter.
There are still plenty of ski days left before season ends.  Deer Valley and Canyons Resort close on April 12th and Park City Mountain Resort extends for another week closing on April 19th.
Although locals may have been bummed with the lack of tree skiing and powder days, visitors enjoyed groomed skiing, gorgeous sunny days and exceptional outdoor dining options on the mountains.
