For most ski resorts, the season usually runs from December to March or early April, meaning the season is almost over. But think again! Plenty of ski resorts keep their lifts running well into spring but why?
Going skiing and snowboarding at the end of the season when resorts still have snow and are open mean cheaper passes and accommodation than during the winter. It also means less crowded slopes and lift lines. The snow is sometimes a little soft but with higher altitude and colder temperatures, some resorts still offer good quality snow until the spring with nicer weather and longer days than during the mid-winter. In short you will get more sun, longer daylight hours, and longer lift opening times!
Because Mother Nature is unpredictable, come prepared and check BornSkier weather and snow forecast before you travel. Find below a selection of spring skiing and snowboarding spots resulting from a survey collected among 600 people in 8 countries.
