Spring ski festivals to satisfy your spring fever
LATEST UPDATE: APRIL 11, 2022
Sunshine and corn snow are not the only thing to look forward to when it comes to spring skiing. Many ski resorts send off the final weeks of the ski season with a major bang: slush cups, bathtub races, and Hawaiin themed ski days are just a few things that come during the spring.
Grab your ski buddies and get ready to run to the mountains this spring as we have pulled together some epic events from across Alberta and British Columbia to help you send off the 2021-22 ski season with a smile and some great memories.
