Wondering where you can still ski and ride into the spring? We have the answer.

BC ski resort closing dates 2024

Conventional wisdom is that BC ski hills have earlier closing dates, generally, than Alberta owing to the warmer climate west of the Canadian Rockies. Anticipate early April to mid-April closing dates. 

A bonus of BC spring skiing is that warmer conditions in the valleys means in some places, you can do winter and summer in the same day. So pack the snowpants and the bike shorts. You never know!
