We have had an amazing fall here in Park City with some unbelievable colors. I can not believe how long the leaves have hung in there. I am personally waiting for those temperatures to drop and hopefully we will see some snow on the peaks. It is crazy to think but we are only a little over a month from opening. For those of you who have not purchased your season passes don’t forget that October 31 is the early season deadline. For those of you wanting to join our Locals Coupon Book program first-time participants must purchase their Coupon Books by November 30.
Before we open for the ski season we have some of our usual great fall events coming up. Two not to miss are the “Transylvania Tea Party” blood drive and the Navajo Rug Show.
Friday, October 29: Employees of Deer Valley Resort will host the “Transylvania Tea Party” blood drive, a Halloween season tradition. The Transylvania Tea Party Blood Drive was started seven years ago by Deer Valley staffers who wanted to help local health care facilities augment their blood supplies. Members of the public are also warmly welcomed to donate blood at Deer Valley on Friday, October 29, 2010. The Transylvania Tea Party Blood Drive will take place Friday, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Snow Park Lodge. Current Deer Valley staff is being encouraged to participate in full force, and the Blood Drive is open to any community members who wish to donate blood. Walk-ins are accepted, but community donors are encouraged to make an appointment by calling 435-645-6654. Light refreshments will be provided.
Friday – Sunday, November 12 – 14: The 21st Annual Navajo Rug Show & Sale. This year’s Annual Navajo Rug Show will celebrate 21 years of bringing Navajo Elders to Park City to share their culture and sell their rugs. The Elders and their families travel from different parts of the Navajo Reservation and while at the Rug show demonstrate skills such as carding wool, spinning yarn, weaving rugs, and singing traditional songs for school children and the public. A benefit fundraiser takes place on Friday night from 6 to 10 p.m. at Snow Park Lodge and will feature a rug preview and sale, live auction of donated items and packages, entertainment and hors d’oeuvres.
