Aahhhhh!! this is going to be cold!

Spring Slash is coming upon us soon.  On April 19th the official Coca-Cola Winter Park Spring Splash, celebrating the last day the ski resort is open, will mark it’s 41st year.  Wow!  I guess they started it the year I was born.  The race will start at noon at the base of Winter Park with the athletes rideing and skiing the lower part of Larry Sale.  Registeration starts at 8:30am the day of the race.  There will be live music in the plaza from 2:30pm to 6:00pm.  It is a great day for the whole family to celebrate the close of an awesome ski season.  Details can be found at the Winter Park Fraser Chamber of Commerce website http://www.winterpark-info.com/index.aspx?sectionDirectory=events&eventID=1915

Over on the Mary Jane side of the resort is the unofficial Spring Splash.  Not for the whole family, this is the locals way of saying lets get it on summer!  Live music, lots of BBQ and more adult beverages than can be named.  This is a rip roaring good time and it isn’t so tame.  Very crowded later in the day and the Winter Park/Fraser Police have showed up the last few years so be sure to get a ride from the Valley Taxi guys.  Their website is http://www.winterparktaxi.com/
