While many skiers get depressed about their favorite resorts closing and the season ending–recent snow storms in both Colorado and Utah have raised spirits of ski aficionados all across the country.
It isn’t too late to book a ski vacation, in fact some of the best conditions may be yet to come. Colorado recently had over 30 inches of new snow with more on the way. Some predictions are calling for over 2 feet of new snow by the weekend starting April 19th. While many Colorado ski resorts have closed for the season, both Winter Park and Aspen Highlands are still open for business. Copper, Vail and Breckenridge, all receiving in excess of a foot of lovely fresh snow are also opening for the weekend of April 19-21st.
Or, if you want to experience some of the greatest, (and under-appreciated), snow on earth, opt to visit Utah. Both Alta and Snowbird are catering to ski lovers with Snowbird winning the die-hard race and staying open through May 12th. They likely will open on weekends based on snow conditions so do something different and plan a ski vacation to Utah in June. Alta, while closed for skiing during the week, is giving skiers one last hurray by opening April 19-21st and April 26th-28th.
If you aren’t ready to golf yet or give up dreams of powder, book a ski vacation today to Utah or Colorado.
