PARK CITY Park City Academy is hosting its second annual All Mountain Treasure Hunt at Park City Mountain Resort on Friday and Saturday.
The hunt is open to all intermediate and advanced skiers or riders who are game for an afternoon of fun on the mountain. Sponsors include Park City Mountain Resort, JANS, White Pine Touring and Ski Utah.
The weekend kicks off with an evening party on Friday at Park City Mountain Resort's Legacy Lodge and includes dinner, a mini-auction, a full cash bar and dancing to the Gamma Rays. The All Mountain Treasure Hunt takes place Saturday, following lunch at the Legacy Lodge.
Teams of two will be given a "clue passport" leading to nine different checkpoints on the mountain. Each team uses strategy to be the first to find the nine clues, punch the team's passport at each checkpoint and then cross the finish line. The three fastest teams receive prizes.
At one of the checkpoints, teams will pick up a numbered golden coin; one coin will be worth two adult season passes to Park City Mountain Resort for the 2008-09 season. This grand prize is valued at around $3,000.
The hunt is a fundraising event for Park City Academy's scholarship program. Park City Academy is an independent school that has been developing student leaders in the Park City community for 19 years.
