The Best Spring Skiing in Colorado

6 Reasons to Hit Colorado Slopes This Spring

Spring skiing is like starting that last chapter of your favorite slope-style story, the epic climax before the season’s finale, especially when the season has been as good as this one. As the freezing winter temperatures give way to warmer conditions and sunny skies, the “Spring Fever” incites you to celebrate the beginning of the end. Skiers shed their heavy gear, signature spring events fill the calendar, and après ski is at it’s peak.

Bluebird Days

Spring skiing is arguably the best of the season. Winter blizzards are swapped for balmy temperatures ranging from 35-55°F from March to April.  Plus, late morning starts mean sun-softened snow in the afternoon and endless blue skies and extended daylight hours for living the alpine life.

Spring Events

Help conquer cancer at Pink Vail as thousands ski in pink costumes and dance at all-day concerts. And, don’t miss the Taste of Vail showcasing more than 30 of Vail’s finest chefs and restaurateurs. Start off March in Aspen and witness the exciting Audi Power of Four Ski Mountaineering.

Sun-soaked Mountain Patios

Nothing hits the spot quite like a mountain-top Bloody Mary or an extended lunch basking in an alpine chair, especially at Aspen’s famous Cloud Nine Bistro or pop-up champagne bar, The Oasis. Vail Mountain’s Bistro Fourteen is the best for on-mountain scratch cuisine and their “Friday Afternoon Club” drink specials. Talons is Beaver Creek’s newest mountain restaurant with smokehouse inspired eats and an expansive sundeck to enjoy weekly live music.

Après Ski

While skiing may be what draws you to the mountain to play, après is what makes you stay. Cure those sore legs with a hard-earned cocktail on the patio at Red Lion or Pepi’s, a locals favorite hangout in Vail. Après the Aspen way at hotspots like Ajax Tavern’s five-star bar and intimate Limelight Lounge in the sleek Limelight Hotel. Step off the Bachelor Gulch Express and aim for the Ritz-Carlton’s Mountainside Terrace for daily Champagne and mouthwatering seafood spreads.

Closing Day Parties

Though you’ll want to savor every last downhill turn before the season’s finale, those bittersweet feelings will be a mere afterthought when you partake in Colorado’s closing day festivities. Closing day traditions continue throughout Aspen and the Vail Valley as thousands celebrate on the snow beaches to say farewell in style.
