Snowbasin Resort regulars love the 80’s weekend tradition, which began last year. “Spring skiing at Snowbasin is always a good time, and we loved getting a little silly with our 80’s costumes last year. We are already planning our costumes for this year,” says Andrew Kase, a frequent Snowbasin Resort skier.                                                                                                                                                                                                

Snowbasin Resort’s first pond skim, a favorite spring activity at ski resorts all over the country, is sure to be an exciting and entertaining addition to the popular 80’s weekend festivities. Everyone is encouraged to don their finest 80’s ski wear and have some fun, whether on the mountain, pond skimming, or soaking in the sun on the patio.
