Top 5 Reasons We Love Spring Skiing in Vail and Beaver Creek

Who doesn't love spring skiing? While it can be a powder-hound's paradise in January and February, come March and April the skiing and riding is glorious for everyone. Here are the top 5 reasons why we love spring skiing in Vail and Beaver Creek.

1. More Sunshine

If you think catching the first chair on a powder day is fun, try catching the last chair on a sunny spring day with still plenty of daylight left. You can enjoy the view and revel in being one of the last ones before choosing a sunny, soft line down. Ski right to your favorite après spot and toast to a great spring day at Beaver Creek or Vail.

2. Sunny Decks

Soak up the sun and enjoy the stunning scenery on one of Vail and Beaver Creek Ski Resorts' amazing decks. And let's face it, kicking back in your ski boots and lounging slopeside during your ski day for lunch or après is one of life's greatest pleasures. Of course, some of the Vail Valley's sunniest decks with the best views are the ones attached to our homes!

3. Slush Bumps

Slush bumps, also affectionately known as "hero bumps" are one of spring's best-kept secrets. Let's face it. Moguls in 10-degree weather can be pretty solid. Moguls in 40-degree weather can be as smooth as frosting! Easy to turn in, not painful to fall on, and we all look like heroes when schussing through them.

4. No Tears, All Cheers

The kids aren't too cold. No one needs a boot heater, a hand warmer or a 2-hour hot chocolate break. And even beginners love spring skiing. Warmer temperatures, cobalt blue skies, what's not to love? Even if they're feeling a bit humbled on the slopes, they go home with the bragging rights of a goggle tan and memories of a great time. Non-skiers can enjoy snow sports without a blizzard: sun-filled days snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling.

5. Spring Events & Sunshine
Vail: Celebrate spring with food, wine and music!

  • The Taste of Vail (April 3-6)
  • Apres at the Amp (April 5-6)

Beaver Creek: Fun for the entire family!

  • Thursday Night Lights (through April) - a light parade down the mountain (that advanced skiers can participate in!), followed by fireworks.
  • Fun Fest - The village turns festive on Saturdays (throughout March) with carnival games, a stage production and caricature artist. 

As the sun shines brighter, the temperatures warm up faster and smiles are everywhere with collective spring fever! So grab your shades, some sunscreen, and get ready for unforgettable spring skiing in Vail and Beaver Creek!
