10. Spring Skiing Attire

It wouldn’t be spring skiing without wacky outfits from bikinis to full-on costumes. The higher sun angle brings warmer and longer days that have a full-moon effect on skiers and riders. You’ll see it all this time of year.

9. Corny Turns

Ever hear of the term corn snow? It’s skiable snow formed by warm days and cold nights and you’re almost guaranteed a taste of it if you visit in the spring. The corn-like pebbles create a carveable texture even when there’s no new snow, and it’s only found at ski resorts like Breckenridge that stay open long enough and have a deep enough base to create the right corn-snow conditions.

8. Park Laps All Day

Have a blast sending it off of the jumps or pressing the jibs. Breckenridge Ski Resort keeps their parks well-maintained through the spring. Sunny days and softened snow make for fun days trying new tricks. Keep an eye out for the annual Hot Dog Jam featuring hot-doggin’ and actual hot dogs.

7. Big Dumps

Did you know? March and April are two of the snowiest months of the year. It’s not uncommon to be skiing waist-deep pow one day and slush bumps the next.

6. Powder Turns

It’s true. You can still ski and ride powder in March and April as (as stated before), this is usually the snowiest time of year. In fact, a few closing days in Breckenridge’s history have been full-on powder days. Finish your ski season strong when the crowds have gone and the conditions can be extra deep.

5. Beer Festivals

The Breckenridge Beer Festival combines frosty beer, live music, and warming temps every spring.  Enjoy spring skiing in the morning and sample brews all afternoon. Cheers to that.

4. Music Around Town

The concerts on Peak 8 may be gone, but Breckenridge still rocks with everything from big names at the Riverwalk Center to open mic nights at the local bars.

3. Patio Parties

Apres ski is taken to a whole new level in the spring. Find your favorite patio or deck, order a beer or your favorite beverage, and enjoy!
