Spring time may see the winter drawing to a close but it is far from a last gasp of a fantastic, snowy season. In fact, spring may even be the best time of the year to ski and with the sunnier, warmer weather ski resorts everywhere hit their stride hosting plenty of celebrations in the mountains coupled with amazing riding conditions.
We’ve listed just a few of the things that we think make skiing during spring a highlight of the year;
APRES, APRES, APRES
September’s warmer temperatures means enjoying a pot on the deck in the sunshine becomes reality. Nothing beats that feeling of relaxation and laughs with friends and family. Work on the google tan and join the fun across Retro Day and Deck Party celebrations.
You may think that all this excellence sunshine and warmer temperatures will mean a succession of slushy and icy ski runs. Thing is, the last 5-year average snow depth has seen conditions comparable to what we would expect in late-July.
MAXIMUM FUN WITHOUT THE PRICE TAG
As the resort transitions into low peak season, the pressures on your bank balance lighten and you can grab a sensational deal – from reduced stay rates to free skiing for kids, you can enjoy more for less.
SEE YOU IN THE PARK
Enjoy our two Terrain Parks with features to suit our top level riders as well as those new to the freestyle world. Spring means softer snow to help those landings and plenty of blue skies to sight those features. It's your last chance to lock down those tricks you have been wanting to perfect all season long.
POSTCARD PERFECT PHOTOS
Sunnier weather and longer days of spring make it even easier to pursue your creative photography passions and capture stunning images on the slopes. Get the edge with the last chance to win a pair of Oakley Googles in our Instagram #Hotham competition.
SKI STRAIGHT ONTO THE LIFTS
By coming long after most guests have packed away their skis and boards for the season, you’ll be sharing the slopes with only the locals. Enjoy more time on the snow and less time waiting for lifts.
DIGITAL DETOX WITH THE FAMILY
It seems harder than ever to motivate kids away from a screen, but not when you’re on the snow. We have one of the only sports that transcends generations allowing grandparents, parents and kids to participate together. It is not uncommon for kids to upstage all the adults, so be prepared for the ego to take a hit especially at the LEGO Family Build activities which return by popular demand.
This is just a tiny sample of the many reasons to take a snow holiday this spring. So why not check out our Spring Pass and get yourself up into the mountains?
