With Spring just around the corner, now is the time to book your ski getaway before it’s too late. Mention this blog when you book your ski trip (before April 15th) and you’ll recieve 25% off. Don’t miss out on these great savings!

It’s time for the fat lady to sing us into the end of the 2013 Park City, Utah ski season…but she’s hitting a high note on her way out. The slopes at Deer Valley have been amazing the last couple of days with 20 new inches of snow this week and two absolutely blue bird days all before closing weekend.

Booking a ski vacation for closing week at the resorts can sometimes be risky. But our customers who booked vacation rentals in abode’s Park City and Deer Valley properties this week are patting themselves on the back for a good decision made. This week has been exemplary in great weather and sweet snow.

There’s nothing like participating with the locals in all the end of season festivities. And there is no where anyone would rather be than on the beach at Deer Valley’s Silver Lake Village on a closing weekend afternoon…sipping on a cold beer while soaking in the warm sunshine after a perfect ending to a great ski season. The ski costumes of many last-day-of-the-season party people are in and of themselves a sight to behold. We locals call it “clown day” and if you’ve never checked it out – you just might want to consider putting this ski week on your calendar next year.

So slip into your spring ski gear and slap on a goofy hat and a tutu.  Skip on over to Deer Valley this weekend and enjoy the last days of the ski season with some rays of sunshine and some awesome runs.  Lift your plastic cup of beer and toast to another great year behind us and another great year ahead of us…and don’t worry if you’re not in town for the end of season fun this year – you’ve still got time to book your summer Park City vacation!

The hikingfishingbikingoutdoor concerts and Park Silly Sunday Market fun is still a couple months away and will be as wonderful as the winter!!!
