Spring skiing still underway and resorts opening for the weekend

Spring is truly here in its wide range of choices for the outdoor enthusiasts. Spring skiing is still holding on around the country as Loveland Ski Area here in Colorado wraps up their season this Sunday May 3. There is a great discount on lift tickets for Mountain Sports Club members.

Over the pass in Summit County Arapahoe Basin will still be operating for at least another month. Great lodging deals at Summit Cove and other Colorado lodging properties. Looking for a place this summer make sure to use the list of deals at the growing list of Colorado lodging properties.

Just saw a note our friends at Jay Peak in Northern Vermont will open for the weekend. Killington a tad further south is also open. MSC members enjoy lodging deals in the area and throughout Vermont as well.

Last week I had the pleasure of skiing a couple of days at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, in Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah who will stay open through June, snow permitting. It was an exciting week as I was able to attend the PSIA - Professional Ski Instructors of America annual Acedemy featuring top ski instructors from around the country. The conditions were perfect spring skiing wiht lots of sunshine and a relaxing way to keep getting quality turns in for the what is left of this season.

Need a place to stay during your next Utah trip? Make sure to check out the sweet accommodations at Utah's Best Vacation Rentals with prices that cannot be beat. Enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the AM and golf, cycling or hiking in the afternoon.
