4. The Prices
Although snow, drinking, and being warm are important, this might actually trump them all. As the temperatures rise, the price of lift tickets drops. That means that you are in store for some (finally) reasonably priced skiing. We are past the days of holiday rates and blackout periods; the resort is trying to push the season as long as they can and they are going to give you a deal to get you out there to enjoy that spring weather.
5. The Crowds
We’ve all been there after a long cold winter, the second you see sun and get to take your jacket off, you’re done with snow. Your brain just starts to switch over, or at least many people’s do. They move on to activities like working on their golf swing, planting their garden, spring cleaning, and getting ready to put their boat in the water. That means NO LIFT LINES! Cheap tickets, great conditions, good vibes… I’ll tell you what, I’m going to let all those people wax their boats I’m going to be on hill making some epic turns and squeezing every last bit of life out of the ski season that I possibly can.
