Salt Lake City, UT – There aren’t many places in this world where you can unbuckle your ski boots after a day on the slopes, and barely more than 30 minutes later be walking into a symphony or sitting down to enjoy an opera.
But you can do just that in Salt Lake City, and that’s why members of the Utah Symphony donned ski gear and performed a Mozart concerto in the lobby of the downtown Abravanel Hall on Monday. The quartet was promoting a new après-ski program offered by the Utah Symphony and Utah Opera that will offer the best available seat in the house for $35 this winter — a discount of up to $60 — to anyone who shows a lift ticket from any Utah ski resort from the same week.
The program is the result of a new collaboration between Utah Symphony and Utah Opera, the Utah Office of Tourism, Ski Utah and Visit Salt Lake. For Scott Beck, Visit Salt Lake’s president and CEO, the program speaks directly to his city’s new marketing slogan.
“This epitomizes and legitimizes our claim that this is Ski City,” Beck said.
Anyone holding a day ticket is eligible for the discount — visitors and locals alike — but season passes won’t be honored. For more information visit www.utahsymphony.org/apres-ski.
