Winter Park skiing in springWinter Park Spring Skiing

It is getting to be that time of year when the heavy parka goes away and the nice light fleece accompanies you to the ski hill.  Spring! in all its glorious incarnations is just a couple of weeks away and you know what that means? Lotsa lotsa snow, blue skies and drinking beer on the base decks.  There is not a better time to ski in Colorado than spring and that goes for Winter Park as well.

As I said, the snow is usually best in March and April and the temperatures get a little bit warmer and the days a little bit longer.

Winter Park Resort is putting on the Spring Blast presented by Snickers® – Party at the Park on April 3rd and 4th, 2010.  Here is what they have to say about their Spring Blast:

Celebrate the coming of spring! Relax on the decks of Derailer Bar with drink specials and live music, shop ’till you drop at our end of season blowout sales in base area shops, get free bump tips from the Winter Park Ski and Snowboard school, watch the area’s best freeride competitors in rail jam competitions and demo’s, and don’t forget about the season finale Winter Park Spring Splash.

Winter Park Resort is in the top 10 Spring Break Ski Trips  for 2010. Coming in at number3.  Here is what About.com has to say about Winter Park Resort as a spring skiing destination:

Winter Park is just 1 1/2 hours from Denver, Colorado, making it easy and cheap to get to by car, bus or Amtrak train (in fact, you can take the Amtrak ski train straight into Winter Park from either coast and get a 15% Amtrak student discount). A mountain bike-friendly place in summer, Winter Park is loaded with apres-anything spots.

So the weather is looking like Winter Park will be getting hit by lots of wet spring snow storms and the weather will be heating up: it is Spring Skiing in the Colorado Rockies.
