2013 Spring Ski Season in Colorado

This years ski and snowboard season has been a love hate relationship for many outdoor enthusiast.  In Colorado, the winter season started out very slow for most of the resorts with lack luster snow.  There were a few storms that provided some coverage, but too little too late for most of the early season.

As of late, Colorado has seen some good storms roll through the state blanketing the states resorts with lots of fluffy white powder.  What does this exactly mean you might ask.  Well for starters, it means the storms provide much needed moisture that the state so desperately needs.  And second, it means that the spring skiing and snowboarding season will be a good one.  It’s one thing when you get to ski in a 50 degree temps, but it’s another thing when you get to ski in 50 degree temps with good snow.  I’m not saying that the recent storms make it a good or great snow year because that’s just not the case.  What I can tell you is that the snow is decent to good and great on those days when the storms roll through.   With March and April being one of Colorado’s most snowy months, it’s definitely worth considering heading up the hill to get to some end of season turns in.
