Pine Creek Ski Area held its annual Ski Carnival on Saturday, March 14. It was a beautiful day for skiing. This carnival was started in 1977 and has been a winter tradition ever since. It is a great opportunity for young skiers to show off their talents and for the not-so-young to prove they’ve still got it.

This year, there was live music for those taking a break inside the lodge, some great skiing and yummy food. There were athletes competing from Salt Lake City, Evanston, Star Valley, Bear Lake, Mountain View, Kemmerer and Cokeville.
