Is it too early to start thinking about spring skiing? I think that with parts of the country plunged into the frigid depths of winter, now is actually the perfect time to daydream about the mountains in one of the most underrated seasons. Spring skiing is a not so well-kept secret among avid skiers and riders.
The days start to lengthen, leading to extended operating hours for the lifts and more time to make those extra turns. The weather has a tendency to waver between bluebird days and the skies opening up and dropping copious amounts of snow. You can have one day where you’ll see people skiing in t-shirts working on their goggle tans, and the next they’ll be getting fresh tracks in waist deep powder.
