The Fourth of July is always a fantastic time in Park City. The day kicks off with a delicious pancake breakfast, moves up to Main Street with a flyover to start the parade, returns back with lots of activities in City Park and winds up with fireworks from the base of our mountain at dusk. Check out the full schedule of events so you don't miss anything. And if you're like me and always wind up getting blurry/streaky photos of the fireworks every year, check out these 5 tips on how to get great fireworks photos.
The second big event I noted in the post title isn't occuring until January, but I think it might be just as big as the Fourth of July! We're very excited to announce that the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix will return to Park City Mountain Resort on the weekend of January 22-23, 2010. This will be the final event prior to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and it will be where the U.S. Olympic halfpipe team will be announced. Read the press release for more details and be sure to mark off that weekend to come up and get the Olympic flame burning again!
