Another strong snow year means we can anticipate perfect spring skiing through the end of this season. March graces us with later sunrises that keep the snow and corduroy firm in the morning, and long, sunny afternoons that are perfect for après ski at the resort beaches or outdoor concerts and events. And it’s lovely to hear birds chirping again. Embrace the fun ways our resorts and community celebrate spring – there’s so much to choose from!
Annual Pond Skimming Competition

Cheer on the most daring and garishly dressed locals, laugh at their wipeouts, and stick around for the party. For more information, click here.
