Spring Grüv and Pond Skimming | Park City Style

Park City Spring GruvPark City Mountain kicked off Spring Grüv this weekend in Park City, a 16-day event that features live music, family-friendly activities, entertainers and the 22nd edition of the resort's annual pond skimming contest.  Spring Grüv is all about the fun and enjoying every moment we can on the mountain until the season ends.
