5 Reasons to Love Spring Skiing and Snowboarding!

5 reasons to love spring skiing 

Arapahoe Basin boasts the longest ski season in North America. The season lasts through Memorial Day, and sometimes later. Why do people want to keep skiing though? 

Here are the top 5 reasons: 

 1 The sunshine and warmth: Who doesn't like skiing free of a parka, having the chance at seeing girls in bikini tops or costumes that range from 80s onesies to super heroes. 

2 The beach: Wait there's sand? No, at Arapahoe Basin the beach is made of snow and juts up to the lifts. You will be sure to find someone willing to share their grill or a beer at this unique tailgating scene. 

3 Low-cost lift tickets: Check the "Hot Deals" section on arapahoebasin.com for varied low cost day tickets up to 51% off. 

4  Best lodging deals of the season: Nightly vacation rental  rates are at their lowest starting in April. Treat yourself to a large home or a River Run condo with ski area view. Save 20%-35% off already low rates. BOOK NOW   
5 Off season dinner deals: Read the free Summit Daily newspaper in the morning while you enjoy a leisurely breakfast and wait for the snow to soften up. Find 2 for 1 entree specials at the locals favorite spots. Look out for $3 steak night at the Mint Steak House
