Spring has officially arrived in Winter Park, and if you're wondering if a spring ski trip is worth it, you're not alone! We often get questions from customers who call to ask if skiing in late March & April is a good idea. I mean when you're living on the front range with temps cresting the high 70's it can be funny to even think about suiting up in your ski gear, even harder to imagine that powder stashes can still be found. Well, truth be told, for local’s spring ski days often bring some of the best lines all season! Fewer crowds, warmer temps, solid snowfall, and a relaxed tail-gate type vibe are top reasons why late season ski days often make for the best experience.
