Après ski takes on a musical tone at Canyons Resort, as a day hitting the slopes gets a rockin' finish to it with the spring concert series.
Skiers and riders at the Park City, Utah, mountain can take their final turns of the day before kicking off their boots and picking up the sounds. The first three Saturdays in March will feature bands from Utah and California in the Resort Village, at the base near the gondola and Orange Bubble Express. All concerts are free, but outside alcohol is not allowed.
Holy Water Buffalo, described as somewhere between sixties rock and garage band, hits the base area stage March 5 for a two-hour show, starting at 3 p.m.
Swagger, an Irish band based in Park City, will kick it St. Patrick's Day, March 12, also starting at 3 p.m. The group blends Irish and Scottish traditional sounds with American rock, ska, funk, reggae, jazz, country, and folk to create a solid yet experimental sound, according to its website.
Then, Fat Paw and Tim Wray, another local band, will set up at the resort base March 19 to bounce its brand of psychedelic-jam-southern rock sound off the walls.
Included in the festivities will be drawings for skis and snowboards from Park City-based Ramp Sports.
