Spring skiing is right around the corner, and though we are sad to see the season coming closer to an end, we are excited to enjoy some sunny days on the slopes! Spring is when the party truly begins. It’s a great time to enjoy concerts on the plaza, tailgating in the parking lot, and of course the occasional pond skimming on the slopes. With all of the events at the local resorts, there is plenty of fun to be had for all. Check out some fun local events here:
