WINTER EVENTS

JG

 

Our family is so excited that the snow has arrived! Every chance we get we’re savoring the chance to be outside, snowshoeing, skiing and even building a snowman or two. There are no shortage of winter activities in our community, but below are a few we’d recommend you check out, whether you’re thrilled to be outside or huddled up with the one you love, winter is the perfect time to be in Heber Valley.

KOHLER CREAMERY MOZZARELLA MAKING

Learn how to make your own farm fresh mozzarella, from Heather Kohler, wife of our farmer and cheese maker. The class includes detailed, hands-on instruction that you can easily repeat at home. Plan on the class lasting about two hours. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to learn how to make your own farm fresh mozzarella!

WASATCH CITIZEN SERIES

The Wasatch Citizens Series (WCS) ski races have been Utah’s premier nordic skiing events since 1979. When the US Ski Team moved its coaching staff to Park City in the 1980’s, the WCS became a training ground for many of the country’s top skiers. The Park City Junior Nordic Ski Team has launched several young athletes to national recognition, and some of our older participants have consistently won National Masters titles. Members of several U.S. Olympic Teams, including Laura McCabe, Wendy Wagner, and Rosie Brennan, began their skiing careers in our races.

This is a 10-kilometer free technique (skate) race with start and finish in the stadium. Shorter distances for youngsters, oldsters, novices, and sit skiers. Registration will be in the Day Lodge from 8:30 to 9:30. Younger juniors and sit skiers start at 10:00, and adults at about 10:20 after the others have finished. Lunch will be served in the lodge after the race, compliments of Nate Wade Subaru.

CHOCOLATE LOVERS TRAIN RIDE

Enjoy a relaxing and entertaining evening ride and sample wonderful chocolate delights, including from local favorite Mrs Calls Candies! You’ll also be treated to live music with local musicians. Ticket includes chocolate and other samples. Other items will be available in the concession car.

Seating is limited so you can stretch out and relax while we cruise down the tracks. Don’t forget to bring a blanket so you can snuggle up and enjoy all the magic the night has to offer!

SKIJORING

Western skijoring is an action packed competition where a horse and rider pull a skier at a fast pace through a course that includes gates, jumps, and rings. Join us on March 2-3, 2018 at Soldier Hollow for this fast action sport! Skijoring is an egalitarian event open to any and everyone who has a passion for horses or skiing, or both. And if your love for these two also includes fast speeds and friendly competition, then skijoring may just be your calling.
