The ski season may be coming to an end here in Park City, but our town likes to go out with a bang! Park City is known for its traditions, and Spring Gruv is a favorite for visitors and locals alike. Both skiers and non skiers, can take part in the variety of activities fit for the whole family. One of the most anticipated events, is Pond Skimming. What is this Pond Skimming you may ask? Well....combine costumes, skis, a small pond and nerves of steel...and that just scratches the service of this fun yearly event!

Yet another anticipated event at Spring Gruv is KIng of the Wasatch. This cherished tradition, features slopestyle and halfpipe competitions, bringing both skiers and snowboarders together from throughout the USASA Big Mountain West and Intermountain Divisions.

Spring Gruv is known for the music. Daily concerts take place featuring popular local bands as well as big name headlining acts. This year, Michael Franti will be performing! Maybe the best thing about all of this.....it's free!

Lesson to be learned....come to Park City in the winter to ski, but stay through the spring to GRUV!
