On a lot of threads, I hear people complaining about “bad” conditions just because it’s warm. Am I the only one who loves spring conditions?
I just returned from 4 days in CO. 3 days with highs at the base near 60 and one day of 5” new snow, high near 40. Each was great. Fast groomers in the morning pre-thaw. Softer stuff midday for great carving. Slush bumps from 2 to close. The sun/weather dictates which runs you ski but each condition is a ton of fun. When 5” of new snow fell, groomers skied like mid winter and many bumps/glades/steeps were refreshed well too. For reference, I skied Vail, BC, Keystone and Breck.
Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh snow mid winter conditions too, but I’ll take spring conditions over lots of midwinter conditions (icy, thin cover, -20 F, etc.)
