Summit County’s own closing ceremonies

It’s hard to believe, but with April right around the corner the time has come to say goodbye to the not-so-epic 2009/2010 ski season. While most people up here will agree it wasn’t the best season for powder slashing, I still feel like I had a pretty decent winter on the hill.

The silver-lining to every ski season is that when it comes time to close down the mountain the resorts go all out with parties,  free concerts, and amateur on-mountain competitions. Not to mention, plenty of opportunities to perfect your end of the season goggle tan with a beer in hand.

Time to get out the April calendar, because there is no shortage of things to do in Summit over the next few weeks…
