Après-Ski Spring Events on the Powder Highway

A visit to the Powder Highway is a bucket-list experience, with so many mountains to ski/ride – you’ll need to return again and again to experience all of the 100+ operators along the route. 

In spring, our snow conditions can range from hot-dog skiing weather to full-on winter riding.  Come prepared; bring layers to adapt to daily (and sometime hourly) changes in our spring weather – as your day can go through sunny bluebird to fresh snowfallWink, wink – if you want to ‘bask in the sun’ – late March to early April is the best time to experience our après-ski events.

Here is the scoop on our fun-filled après-ski events happening this year (March 15th and onward) at our alpine ski & snowboard resorts.
