    This past weekend I skied at Mount Snow. Every trail had excellent coverage, the trees were supurb, and it was nearly 50 degrees. So, no, spring skiing doesn't mean all the harder trails are closed. But, I do prefer to ski when the temperature is below freezing. Some people like true winter skiing better than spring skiing.

    Exactly. Green circle terrain and lower intermediate terrain always melt out first.

    Many skiers might suggest that the season is only just really beginning in March.

    I've had numerous spring skiing days that were better than powder days.

    You have to be more selective of what days you ski. Conditions will be rather poor during spring skiing if the temperature and sun exposure are not sufficient to soften the snow. However, it always snows in March and April so there is still powder to be had.

    All I know is the two days of spring conditions at my favorite place this past weekend, was probably some of the best snow days for me this year.

    Sugarbush more often than not closes with Steins. Killington closes with Superstar. If you love bumps there is no better time!

    Bumps are so sweet in the spring, I can even ski them.

    And to think this was groomed the day before.

    They've blown a ton more snow this year than last.

    Spring skiing is more my pace. Moguls, soft snow, sunny afternoons, light crowds, bbq, beer, babes, bring it.

    I love spring skiing. It's the best time to learn bumps + there's warm weather. I hate ice too.
