Spring skiing this year? - Page 2

post #31 of 34
Mary Jane was good yesterday as well with pretty consistent conditions all day. We don't seem to have any big storms in the forecast, but no big stretches of warm and dry, either.

Skiing Copper next weekend and then WP to the close on the 21st.

April 2013 will be great skiing in Colorado.  No fooling!

 

Skiing is fantastic at the higher elevation Colorado resorts, much better than this time last year when we were in a free fall base melt.  Given the forecast for the next 10 days, skiing should continue be great through closing day for most resorts: April 14th.  A-basin and Loveland will be skiing nicely well after that.  It's not too late to book a trip!   There are great prices and lots of fun parties, free concerts, etc.  Expect few crowds and little traffic on I-70, as folks in Denver are playing golf, riding bikes and taking kiddos to soccer games rather than skiing.   Personally I'd rather ski Colorado most days in April than November or December.

I thought Mt. Snow was fantastic yesterday.  There were some bare spots on the lower parts of the mountain, but not too many.  Overall, the conditions were quite good, particularly considering it was the last day of March.  I would imagine they will hold up for a little while longer, but I could see a major melt coming if the weather gets much warmer and/or there is any significant rain.

 

The mountain was practically empty and it was nice to take advantage of the CT Ski Council discount.  I was able to even use a coupon from my kids' ski rentals.  We ended up paying $68 for 3 tickets.  It's hard to beat that.

Overall pattern is supposed to favor the west starting late weekend, does look reasonably good for us. I have plans for six days between now and the 19th.
