Spring skiing has come upon us, which means it is time to start peeling off the layers and soaking in the sun! It is the last hoorah before the resorts close. And although we are sad to see the season coming closer to an end, we are really enjoying spring skiing. Here are some things we love about spring skiing:
That Vitamin D!
‘Tis the season of goggle tans and wearing your swimsuits on the slopes. Bluebird days are just good for the soul. Not to mention, taking your kids up to the slopes is MUCH easier when it is warm out and the sun is shining. Kids love spring skiing…which means parents love spring skiing even more!
Party on the slopes!
It’s like going to the last day of school. Everyone is there to party and goof around on the mountain. Not to mention all of the Spring Festivals up at the resorts. Check out some local events HERE.
No more crowds!
Forget about lift lines, because they don’t exist in the spring. You don’t need to stress about getting first chair or getting to the mountain before the powder is gone because the deep powder days are over. (Unless you are in Utah where powder days are truly unpredictable and sometimes show up in late April!) Which brings us to our next favorite thing…
Late season storms.
Some of the best powder days happen in late March, and even April. (Check it out HERE!)
Tailgating in the parking lot!
Who doesn’t love grilling up a couple burgers or hot dogs in the parking lot on a bluebird day? It is the best! (It is also quite a lot cheaper than getting resort food!)
Skiing with friends.
That “no friends on a powder day” rule gets kicked out the door once spring comes around. We like hanging out with our friends, and skiing with them is even better.
Spring is a great time to buy new gear. Everything goes on sale, from mittens to demo skis! It is a great time to add to your gear stash.
