Can it get any better? Hell yeah! Its time for spring skiing!

Ya gotta totally love this time of year. More daylight, extended hours for the lifts and its warmer – and I mean waay warmer. Best part is, every resort is cranking up the activities to keep you playing in the snow. Some resorts are banking on record breaking snow conditions to take us well into May but here is a round up of activities to plan for right away. Don’t forget the sun screen and the eye protection!!!

SilverStar has epic snow

“The tops of light posts are poking out of glacial snowbanks!” says Oscar Gordon, Media & Marketing Manager for SilverStar Mountain Resort. People can’t find their cars under all the snow and they are tunneling to get through the snow. What does that mean? It means the season is ending on an incredible BANG! SilverStar will host their annual Slush Cup on Saturday April 7, Sunday April 8th is the last day of skiing and the annual Retro Day. Look for spring deals here .

Revy boasts best snow in a decade

revelstoke

A storm brew through on March 3rd, putting the resort in overdrive. They have seen over TEN Metres of snow to date and that’s a whole metre more than last year at this time. Wrapping the season is bitter sweet. To cap off the banner year, Revelstoke gives back to the community with Local’s Day on April 8th. Bring proof of residency to get 10-10-10. Ten bucks for a lift ticket, a rental package and a lesson. How cool is that. The rest of us will have to just dream of being a local for the rest of the season. April 15th is the last day of skiing.

Whistler is whistling a happy tune

Oakley Week is March 14-18 and tucked into the same time is the Whistler’s Junior Freeski Challenge. Check back next week for more events.
