Spring Skinanigans!

By Active Alyssa \ March 27 2018

Spring can feel like a sad time if you are a winter lover, but it can also be a very fun time in Utah if you like to celebrate. As the temperatures warm and the winter season starts to wrap up, we don’t anticipate many more powder days, but we do get to look forward all of the celebratory events, concerts, competitions and dress up days. The weekends ahead are some of the most fun times to be had on the slopes. Bust out your ski-kini, leotards, onesies and best retro gear - we'll see you on the slopes!
