Spring Down The Mountains

Get all the turns you can on prime late-season snow.

The snow is melting in Boulder and Denver but not just yet in the peaks of Summit County and beyond. Spring skiing and snowboarding have arrived. You should be stoked. Long sunny days have returned and there’s still plenty of snow to ride. Colorado is home to around 32 ski areas during the winter peak season, but what about spring? Which mountain resorts are best (and open) for those bright spring days? Here’s the lowdown.

Breckenridge — Home to about 3,000 acres of terrain, Breckenridge remains open until mid-to-late May. It continues to operate all Five Peaks for as long as the weather allows thanks to a base elevation of 9,600 feet.

Arapahoe Basin — A-Basin typically has the longest spring riding season, lasting until June and sometimes into July. Pack your grills and coolers and head to The Beach where you can kick back and party in between runs, thanks to historically late-season snow.

Winter Park — Didn’t get enough  Mary Jane over the winter? Don’t sweat it. Winter Park continues to be a playground for skiers and snowboarders well into spring. Back this year is Spring Bash + Splash, four weekends straight of live music, parties, and many other festivities running Mar. 30–Apr. 21. Closes early May.
