Welcome to spring skiing, one of the best, possibly most underrated, aspects of our sport. There are many reasons to love spring skiing in Park City.
Here are our Top 10 Reasons to ski Park City in March.
- Amazing Weather. Blue bird skies, and skiing with one less layer will always make skiing that much more enjoyable in the spring in Park City.
- Great snow. There’s that magic window between when the top layer of the snow starts to thaw and when the melt sinks more than four inches into the surface. That window is when spring corn emerges and there is only one option for skiers and snowboarders. “Harvest the Corn.”
- Family Activities in the Spring. Gorgoza Park offers 7 tubing lanes, mini-snowmobiles, and the Fort Frosty play area, just 2 miles east of Parley’s Summit off of I-80.
- Google tans. Nothing says “I’ve been skiing” than a springtime google tan.
- Springtime Park City Powder. Those turns down Jupiter? Pure bliss. Especially because they were unexpected. Finding powder in spring (unless, of course, we’re getting that perennial epic blizzard in April) is like a gift from the snow gods. March is historically one of Park City’s snowiest months and often brings surprise storms of fresh, fluffy powder. Combined with blue-bird skies, the morning-after powder runs are some of the year’s best.
- Kids love it. The best time to introduce kids to skiing is in the spring because it’s warm, comfortable, and a soft landing. You might even try snowboarding as well in the spring.
- Beginner skiers love spring skiing. What sounds more appealing: trying to learn how to slide downhill with your feet immobilized in strange objects in zero degree temperature or in forty-five degree temperature?
- Spring Gruv & Pond Skimming –Park City/Canyons Resort features free outdoor concerts every Saturday at 3 p.m. The best part? You can ski any resort and take part in the festivities, which occur at the resort base.
- Park City Pond Skimming If you’ve never seen #PondSkimming costumed contest in action, it’s an event worth attending live. This year’s event will take place at Canyons Resort on April 6, 2019. More about Spring Gruv in Park City.
