We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

EVE Air

Wednesday Dec. 29-Friday Dec. 31 @ The Salt Palace

People might talk about heading up to the mountains and hitting up one of the resorts to see skiing demos and competitions as part of the year-end celebrations. But as anyone who has tried to do can attest, getting up to resorts to check them out—while dealing with often treacherous roads and weather—sometimes just doesn’t seem worth it unless you’re a die-hard fan.

So rather than take the time heading to the hills, the hills have been brought to you. VitaminWater and Maverik teamed up in sponsorship to bring you EVE Air, a snow-filled area outside the Salt Palace for those wishing to see the slopes. Taking over West Temple between 100 and 200 South, 50 tons of snow will be shipped in and dropped onto the city street to form a competition slope.

While in previous years, residents have seen the same kind of demonstrations, they were confined to smaller areas. This one will take up up half the length of a Salt Lake City block to accommodate fans and skiers alike. All three EVE nights will see two 90-minute demos and competitions (including a bonus hour on the 31st) with some of Utah’s best skiers and snowboarders. If it’s anything like 2009’s, expect to see surprise guests and maybe even a couple of giveaways—not to mention some of the sickest tricks you’ll ever see performed downtown.
