While most resorts are trying to ramp down and close-up shop by April 1st, there are a few ski resorts still waving the spring break skiing flag. Besides the party scene going off on the slopes, corn-huntin’ season is in full effect! Here are five resorts offering you UNLIMITED skiing & snowboarding through the end of their season. It’s spring season pass time as they push the limits on those closing dates.
Five Ski Resorts Offering A Spring Season Pass
Mt Bachelor, Oregon
Target Closing: Memorial Day Weekend
The “OG” of the spring season pass, it’s one of the best out there for late season. In fact, it can be argued that it’s even better for spring break skiing. How come? Just like most mountains near the Pacific Ocean, storms come in fierce in the winter bringing LOTS of wind and snow forcing the resort to shut down the summit chair 30% of the time. As the season wanes, the summit chair is open almost all spring long due to the massive amounts of sunshine and beautiful weather. With nearly 100% of Mt Bachelor open typically through the end of April and 2,000 acres in May, it has some of the best late season skiing on the content.
Target Closing Date: Late May or until the snow melts
The Beast of the East is always known for pushing the limits of what a ski season’s length should be. In fact, last year they pushed closing day all the way into June! This is your time to celebrate spring in the mountains with soft snow, sunshine and most of all parties.
Spring Unguided Pass
Silverton Mountain, Colorado
Target Closing Date: April 18th
Less of a ski resort and more of a lift-served backcountry destination, Silverton’s spring pass with its high elevation gives you a chance to get in some powder riding before the season ends. The Spring Unguided Pass includes the spring season, plus an exclusive private day at Silverton Mountain on March 15th, along with access to $59 Heli skiing runs and many other discounts throughout the winter season. While it’s already sold out for this year, keep your eyes peeled this summer for the 2021/22 spring season.
Timberline Lodge, Oregon
Target Closing Date: Spring pass goes through May 28
You can’t say spring skiing without talking about Mt Hood and Timberline Resort. Besides having the longest season in North America (7 days a week until June), it also offers you:
- Diverse terrain for all ability levels
- Night skiing
- Access to amazing restaurants and bars in Portland
- Historic Timberline Lodge
Lake Louise, Canada
Target Closing Date: Late May
The longest season in Canada gives you the chance to experience the last bit of winter before he makes his retreat to the southern hemisphere. Due to its northerly location, mid-winter temps can be frigid and are often below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring is when these temps warm up to the point that they’re comfy and yet you can still sample the legendary cold smoke Rocky Mountain powder. Historically, April sees almost as much snow as February or March! If there’s a time to visit Lake Louise, it’s in the spring.
Note: For 2020/21 season the Lake Louise Spring Pass isn’t being offered.
