Spring Festivities at Snowbird

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 28, 2013 3:51 pm

With the 2012-2013 ski and snowboard season coming to a close in the next two months, Snowbird has announced plans to liven the spirit on the mountain with entertainment at the resort, featuring live music on the Plaza Deck, Easter festivities, and two international big mountain skiing competitions.

“There’s still plenty of time for a weekend getaway at Snowbird, and the spring skiing is fantastic,” exclaimed Dave Fields, VP of Resort Operations.

On Easter Sunday, you might even find the Easter Bunny hopping around Snowbird dropping a few eggs for the free Easter egg hunt. The hunt is open to children up to 11 years old and will be held in Chickadee Bowl at 9 am.


In addition, there will be a sunrise service on Hidden Peak starting at 7:15 am. Free Aerial Tram rides will be offered to transport guests to Hidden Peak starting at 5:45 am. However, no skis or snowboards will be allowed on the Tram until the resort opens for skiing and riding at 9 am.

Snowbird is also stoked to host the Freeride Junior World Championships April 3-5, which is a huge youth big mountain ski competition. The Subaru Freeride World Tour for adults will make its appearance at Snowbird April 11-13. This event will bring out some of the top big mountain freeskiers from around the world, which is exciting for the resort and its guests to enjoy.

Live music will be blasting on the Plaza Deck every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 2-5 pm with the following performances scheduled:

April 5 Ghostowne

April 6 Mr. Whoopee

April 7 AM Bump Trio

April 12 Red Desert Ramblers
