Through the first weeks of April, I couldn’t help but feel like winter was still on its way- grasping to a smidgen of hope that there were powder days to come.
Unfortunately, it became increasingly clear that winter was over in Utah, and all too soon I was standing on the slushy mountain, snowboard in one hand and a mimosa in the other: closing day.
Happy because you’re riding & it’s a party, sad because it’s ending- the day began under the Three Kings Lift, with minimal snow coverage.
Some hustled, trying to finally stomp that trick and others (me) threw in the towel and focused on making the last day a memorable one.
Cobra Dogs wasn’t the only hot spot on the mountain, tons-o-friends also gathered at abandoned mine shafts and bid farewell there. Naturally, there were some great costumes.
Eventually, the champagne ran out and the lifts stopped turning. Check out the last run in 3 Kings below:
What an eventful year- thank you, Park City Mountain Resort, keeping the chairs turning… can we maybe get some more snow the next time around? Good Talk.
