Top Five Mountains for Spring Skiing

As Lawrence Peter Berra once said, it ain't over til it's over. And when it comes to ski season, an approaching spring equinox is by no means an end. In fact, more snow typically falls in March than in any other month and daytime conditions are typically warm and sunny. With that in mind, has handpicked five destinations being among the best places to go for some spring skiing, and, of course, snowboarding, too.

1. Vail
Vail's huge end-of-the-season bash features on-snow events, street parties, the World Pond Skimming Championships and free concerts from artists including Guster, Wyclef Jean and the Robert Earl Keen Band.

2. Breckenridge
In its 10th year, the Breckenridge Spring Massive event delivers concerts, competitions, nightlife, exhibitions, jams, film shoots, family activities and more.

3. Jackson Hole
The fifth annual Mountain Festival weekend kicks off with Grace Potter and the Nocturnal headlining a free concert. Then visitors will enjoy the Marmot Coombs Classic and after party.

4. Aspen/Snowmass
The 10th annual Bud Light Spring Jam includes two weekends of new-school competitions, downtown concert and parties. Visitors will enjoy big air competitions, live music from Vampire Weekend and the Greyboy Allstars and more.  

5. Whistler
The defining celebration of Whistler is the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival— a 10-day (and night) showcase of the latest progressions in the skiing and snowboarding world, where even the arts events are packed full of adrenaline. Guests enjoy Canada's largest free outdoor concert series with career making showdowns of action sports and lifestyle fashion,  photography and film, and serious nightlife.

Although it didn't make the list, we recently enjoyed some spring skiing ourselves at Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid, NY. Check out the video below.
