Top 5 Reasons We Love Spring Skiing in Breckenridge

Who doesn't love spring skiing? While it can be a powder-hound's paradise in January and February, come March and April the skiing and riding is glorious for everyone. Here are the top 5 reasons why we love spring skiing in Breckenridge.

1. More Sunshine

If you think catching the first chair on a powder day is fun, try catching the last chair on a sunny spring day with still plenty of daylight left. You can enjoy the view and revel in being one of the last ones before choosing a sunny, soft line down. Ski right to your favorite après spot and toast to a great spring day at Breckenridge.

2. Sunny Decks

Soak up the sun and enjoy the stunning scenery on one of Breckenridge’s amazing decks. And let's face it, kicking back in your ski boots and lounging slopeside during your ski day for lunch or après is one of life's greatest pleasures. Of course, some of Breckenridge's sunniest decks with the best views are the ones attached to our homes!

3. Slush Bumps

Slush bumps, also affectionately known as "hero bumps" are one of spring's best-kept secrets. Let's face it. Moguls in 10-degree weather can be pretty solid. Moguls in 40-degree weather can be as smooth as frosting! Easy to turn in, not painful to fall on, and we all look like heroes when schussing through them.

4. No Tears, All cheers

The kids aren't too cold. No one needs a boot heater, a hand warmer or a 2-hour hot chocolate break. And even beginners love spring skiing. Warmer temperatures, cobalt blue skies, what's not to love? Even if they're feeling a bit humbled on the slopes, they go home with the bragging rights of a goggle tan and memories of a great time. Non-skiers can enjoy snow sports without a blizzard: sun-filled days snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, or a visit to the hot springs are a few spring favorites.

5. Spring Events & Sunshine

April in Breckenridge has no shortage of events and festivities! Spring is nature's way of saying "let's party" and Breckenridge spring events are just that! Watch as the daring take on the Imperial Challenge. Swing by the Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival to enjoy craft brews from around Colorado and beyond, with live music to boot. Don't miss local breweries, Broken Compass, and Breckenridge Brewery to sample their rotating menu of small-batch beers.

As the sun shines brighter, the temperatures warm up faster and smiles are everywhere with collective spring fever! So grab your shades, some sunscreen, and get ready for unforgettable spring skiing in Breckenridge!
