Spring Skiing

Spring is one of the best times of the year for skiing and snowboarding in Summit County. Storms saturated with moisture dump 10” of snow one day, and the next you’ll find blue skies and temperatures in the 50s. To celebrate spring and the end of the ski season each resort hosts a variety of events including concerts, beer festivals and pond skimming. Breckenridge’s “Spring Fever” runs from March 17 to April 14 and includes concerts from The Mighty Mighty Bosstone, The Dirty Heads and Matisyahu. Over at Keystone spring skiers can enjoy pond skimming and a live concert from Robert Randolph. And Copper Mountain’s Sunsation festival on closing weekend includes live music and a floating rail jam. Make sure to load up on sunscreen, grab your light weight coat and get to Summit County for some spring skiing!

Closing Dates:
Breckenridge: April 14th
Copper Mountain: April 14th
Keystone: April 7th
