Snowboard Iskola

We love the powder here in Utah. I mean, Ski Utah’s slogan is The Greatest Snow on Earth®. But while that mid-winter powder bliss makes life worth living through the deep, dark months of December to February, it's a breath of fresh air when the time for spring boarding rolls around.

The final leg of the season in the beehive state offers a unique opportunity to experience some epic storms that turn quickly into bluebird powder days and soft groomers perfect for those high speed carves.

From pond skimming extravaganzas to themed costume days, this article serves as a guide to the creative and entertaining events that make springtime on these hills an unforgettable celebration.
