After Colorado's epic 2020-2021 ski season, we're thrilled to see what spring skiing in Colorado holds this year.
With 28 world-class resorts, Colorado is arguably the epicenter of North American ski culture. And spring is quite possibly the best time of year to ski these majestic mountains. The high elevation often brings “bluebird” conditions in the months of March and April. Complete with sunny, blue skies that make spring skiing so enjoyable – it’s a unique treat that Coloradans cherish.
The best part? You typically don’t have to sacrifice excellent snow conditions to enjoy the milder weather. March and April are often the heaviest months for Colorado snowfall, so you’re equally likely to be cruising through fresh powder as you are to be getting a suntan. Now how’s that for a two-for-one?
For many, April is a time for fun last runs of the season with friends, mixing other activities in thanks to the longer days, and resort-sponsored events. Concerts, parties, and festivals are common. If you're looking for a great spring skiing experience, head to any of the resorts for their final-day festivities. Below are the 2020/2021 closing dates for Colorado's most popular resorts.
And here's a look at April's average highs and lows:
The 2020 closing dates for Colorado ski resorts are:
A-Basin: June 4
Breck: April 4
Beaver Creek: April 11
Vail: April 11
Telluride: April 4
Steamboat: April 11
Every week we feature a few homes that would be perfect for a Colorado Spring Break getaway. It's just one of the benefits of booking directly with a property manager or homeowner, rather than on sites like HomeAway or Airbnb.
The resort you choose comes down to a couple qualifications, including when you’re traveling, and who’s in your group.
Where to stay when skiing at A-Basin
While there isn't a resort at the base of the mountain, there's plenty of lodging options nearby. Check out our vacation rentals in Breckenridge, just a 30-minute drive from the lifts.
Southern Comfort is ideally situated at the edge of Mountain Village Core, so you'll be walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, and bars of the ski village, yet also have true ski-in, ski-out access, amazing views, and peace and privacy.
