Cold Places: Photographs by Sue Flood

Steeps & Stashes Ski Clinic

Friday, March 1

 
First Friday Fireworks

Après at Silver Lake

1-4 p.m. @ Deer Valley Resort

Mike Rogers, traveling dueling pianist and local “Sautéed Mushrooms” band member, delivers get-up-and-groove (or just rest-those-quads-and-sip-a-beer) après tunes for the mid-mountain crowd at Silver Lake. www.deervalley.com

The Dusty Boxcars

7 p.m. @ DeJoria Center

Need to feel a little more country for the evening? Mosey on over to Kamas for Americana-tinged, acoustic-blues stylings of Kerry Strazdins and John Thomas Draper. 21+ dejoriacenter.com

 Super Diamond – Neil Diamond Tribute

8 p.m. (doors) @ O.P. Rockwell

Two words: “Sweet Caroline.” Enough said. None of us can resist that “ba-ba-ba” chorus of that Fenway Park favorite and there’s plenty of other Diamond hits performed by this decade-old tribute band that will keep this club rocking out with a nostalgic lilt. 21+ www.oprockwell.com

Saturday, March 2

 
Silver Summits Challenge

9 a.m. @ Park City Mountain

The gauntlet has been thrown. Summit and ski or ride seven peaks, spanning 7,300 acres—all in one day. The Silver Summits Challenge returns to Park City Mountain, delivering wall-to-wall, inbounds (but backcountry-like) skiing and riding, starting at Canyons Village and wrapping up with après festivities at Legacy Lodge. A portion of the proceeds go to the non-profit, SOS Outreach. parkcitymountain.com

Snowshoe Tour

8:30 a.m. @ Swaner Preserve

Perhaps, it's time to unplug and just wander. If so, strap on a pair of snowshoes for a guided, nature tour through the 1,200-acre preserve. Keep an eye out for animal tracks while you make your own. Terrain is mostly flat and accessible to all ages and snowshoe rentals are available. swanerecocenter.org 

 
Live Music Après

3-6 p.m. @ EBS Lounge, Deer Valley Resort

Kick back after a day on the hill and soak in the sounds of B.D. Howes at Snow Park Lodge. Typically, EBS bands set up on the deck, weather permitting. If it’s a bluebird day, grab an upper-deck table and soak in the sun and après ambiance. www.deervalley.com

The Black Stallion

4 p.m. @ Park City Library

Kids need a little downtime? Head to the Jim Santy for some quality cinema for the whole clan. Part of the free, books-2-movies series, this classic film follows the tale of a boy and the horse he befriends after they both survive a tragedy at sea. www.parkcityfilm.org

Spring Concert Series

3 – 5 p.m. @ Park City Mountain (Canyons Village and Park City base)

March means music—glorious slope-side sounds—as PCM kicks off its weekly concert series with rock-and-roll band Muddpuddle at Payday Deck and alt-psychedelic-soulful band Night Marcher at Canyons Village Stage. www.parkcitymountain.com

Kitchen Dwellers

8 p.m. (doors) @ O.P. Rockwell
