Springtime in the Mountains

Don't throw the boards into storage just yet. March, April, and even May (if you ski at Mt. Bachelor) are the best months to get great deals on lodging, lift tickets, and equipment, all while curating a gnarly goggle tan. Sun, brews, music, and costumes are what make spring skiing the next best alternative to an epic powder day. Here's where to close out yet another great season of shredding.

Mt. Bachelor has added two weeks to its season, pushing its closing day back to May 29th. Bachelor will also hold Springtacular this year to celebrate one of the longest seasons in North America. Make sure to round up three of your buddies to enter the Cascade Lakes Brewing Company Suds Cup Race Series. Put together some ridiculous costumes and 100 bucks to compete in four separate events in April. If you’ve got teens who want to hang in the park, enter them (16 and under) into the Salomon Jib Academy. There is no cost and they’ll get a chance to shred with Salomon pro coaches, and compete for great prizes in some of the best terrain parks in the world. The Jib Academy gets going on April 9th.
