Send in the clowns to ski

On April Fool's day, clown costumes have been a tradition since the mid-1970s.

I hope you’re not afraid of clowns. If you are, stay clear of April Fools Day at Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR).

The favorite annual tradition is cause to prank, joke and jester in clown costumes while skiing and boarding spring powder. The mischief-makers scatter about on popular runs turning heads and drawing smiles from little snow bunnies. In the 70s and 80s, the troupe were far more troublesome, wreaking so much havoc on the mountain that town officials banned the activity.

Today I only caught sight of a few nostalgic stragglers at the base of the Payday lift.
