VALLEY – For skiers and snowboarders who waited a little longer than usual this year for maximum winter conditions, longer days and spring events are just around the corner. For those looking to try Colorado’s signature winter sports for the first time, spring’s sunny skies and warmer temperatures make it a great time to learn.
Spring in the high-country features bluebird skies, fun, family-friendly events and frequent snowfall. Resorts across the state will celebrate the spring season with discounts on lodging and lift tickets and will host events galore including free concerts, fat bike races, après ski parties and more.
Some spring skiing discounts and events at Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) member ski resorts include:
