Sunshine, soft snow, lazy afternoons with a drink on the terrain – what’s not to love? For many of us it’s our favourite time of the ski season. The days are getting longer, the afternoon sunshine warmer, but it’s still dropping well below freezing overnight, so the snow is still in great shape first thing. Spring skiing has a fun and relaxed atmosphere after the cold intensity of midwinter when we’ve tried to get every minute of daylight out on the snow. Now is the time to kick back and relax, making the most of the best morning conditions but then enjoying the afternoons with a beverage.
If you’re lucky enough to be skiing in Colorado this winter, you’ll find something new at all 21 members of Colorado Ski Country USA. The news this season includes more than a gloveful of big anniversaries: Copper’s 50th, Eldora’s 60th, Steamboat’s 60th, Sunlight’s 55th, and Telluride’s 50th. Not to be outdone, Steamboat’s Howelsen Hill is a spry 107 years old this season, the oldest continuously operating ski area in North America. Colorado Ski Country USA itself celebrates 60 years of promoting and growing Colorado’s ski industry. #AMountainForEveryone
