Heading up to the mountains for a spring skiing vacation? Good choice! Spring skiing consists of some epic fun in the sun; below you’ll find some great local knowledge to make it the perfect getaway.
Where to stay:
First and foremost, finding the best lodging to fit your groups needs are very important. Planning ahead will relieve the stress of trying to find a place last minute. If you are wanting to be a part of all of the action, with a ski-in-ski-out, mountain top patio, hot tub access and close to town, then there are plenty of places to fit those desires. Just visit Group Rentals to find the best suited package for your group. Keep a look out for Spring Break Deals going on for large student groups as well.
Head west of course! Visit any one of many Skiing destinations in Summit County to visit what many have already deemed “The best spring break ever”. Be ready for lots of parties, competitions, apres-ski scenes, family events and tons of free live music going on. Looking to relax at the end of a long day of skiing while sipping on a cold brewski? Definitely check out the Spring Fever festivities, that are happening all over Summit County. In Breckenridge, Spring Fever consists of a series of big events that happen at the base of Peak 8 on certain Saturday and Sunday afternoons. After a great concert enjoyed in the thin air, head downtown where you will find lots of delicious restaurants, endless amounts of shopping and tons of local bars with other spring breakers like yourself looking to have a good time. PS- Pace yourself!
With it being later in the season, that means you will more than likely encounter slushy conditions, which means warmer and sunnier days. Getting up nice and early to get a full day on the mountain means more fun in the sun, so do not forget to bring sunscreen, eye protection and remember to stay hydrated, especially after a long night of drinking! Even though it is much warmer during this time of year, bring the right clothing to keep you protected from the sun and wind. Night time will slowly sneak up on you, so dress for the cold breezy nights as well. Better to be prepared for any weather condition, just incase you get to experience an epic Colorado powder day!
Going on Spring Break can definitely get costly, so here are some local suggestions on saving:
1. Lift Tickets– for the lowest prices on lift tickets, buy them online in advance.
2. Transportation from Airport–Local free buses in ski towns are normal, and booking your trip from the airport with Peak 1 can save you big bucks. Take a sweet Mercedes from Peak 1 Express to take you to paradise.
3. Happy Hour– check out local spring break specials all over town.
Do not wait until last minute to find the best deals! Look around and you will find yourself saving that cash! Start planning for your next spring break up in the mountains as soon as possible so once you arrive everything is relaxing and smooth sailing. Enjoy!
