Winter may seem like the ideal time to play in the snow, but think again. The conditions are actually best in the spring from March through May. Not only are the crowds less (except during Spring Break at the end of March) but the snow is also silky smooth and ready for a great boarding or skiing experience. Weather is warmer in the spring months and it makes for a smoother, more comfortable ride. There is no other time more pleasant to enjoy skiing or snowboarding in Colorado than in the spring.
Also, consider this: The prices of everything are far less for springtime skiing or snowboarding. Lift ticket prices are slashed, lodging costs less, shopping is cheaper because retailers are trying to clear out winter inventory, and even the prices at restaurants are less! What better time to take to the slopes than in the spring? Avoid the crowds, save some money, and stay warm under the spring sun while gliding over smooth powder.
Next time you are planning a ski trip, remember to consider doing it in the spring. If you don’t like crowds, you will appreciate the peaceful ambiance of the Colorado slopes in the spring months.You also won’t freeze and you will save heaps of money on lift tickets and lodging. This might allow you to sneak in another trip or two (skiing or otherwise) due to the money you save! Get more vacations for the same amount of money. Who knew? Colorado is full of surprises.
