Even though the windy, wet and chilling weather put a damper on our sunny spring here in the valley, it rejuvenated the mountain ski scene. Spring skiers can now slice their way through more than a foot of new snow at many of our skiing destinations.
While this may be the last weekend to rip through snow at many resorts, Snowbird and Brighton will continue to stay open with 80-100 inch bases. Strap on the boots, wax those skis and get out for these great spring skiing events and deals while you can:
