Top 10 Reasons to Love Spring Skiing and Riding


My Top 10 Reasons to love spring skiing and riding.

  1. Goggle tans – remember to apply your sunblock.
  2. Skiing the decks – great excuse to visit the Snow Hut, Summit House, Mid-Mountain Lodge and The Shack all in one day.
  3. Slush bumps – I’m not a bump skier unless it’s spring and slushy.
  4. Spring Sales – currently at 30% off at Legacy Sports.
  5. Daylight Savings Time has changed so the snow stays firm for the morning – check out my tips for how to best ski the mountain in the spring.
  6. Silly costumes – be creative, have fun, or just enjoy what you see sliding around on the slopes.
  7. Fun and free events – this week we have Apres Concerts and Snowasis in the Snow
  8. Wind Shirts – my wife hates mine, but I think they’re awesome (and these aren’t even all that ugly).
  9. Lift ticket deals – check out 50% off night skiing (closes on March 31, 2013) and other great specials.
  10. Only seven more months until the 2013-2014 winter season!
  11. Ok – I lied, there’s one more reason – I’ve had some of my best powder days ever in the spring – this shot was taken on March 30th a few seasons back!
