Make The Most Of Spring Skiing

If you're a skier, springtime on the slopes is hard to resist. Days are longer and warmer, the prices are generally less expensive and there are usually fewer crowds. Here are some helpful hints to make the experience even more enjoyable:

1. Always wear sunscreen

Protect your skin from the stronger springtime sun with an adequate layer of sunscreen on any exposed skin. And since you are moving around and sweating as you ski, don’t forget to reapply every four hours.

2. Stay hydrated

This follows the same logic as applying sunscreen. The sun is out, so you will be warmer and sweating more. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.

3. Wear goggles or sunglasses

The brighter sun bouncing off the snow can be blinding. Protect your eyeballs with tinted goggles or athletic sunglasses.

4. Wear a lighter coat

To avoid overheating, try a fleece or a waterproof jacket with lots of ventilation pockets.

5. Tune up your skis

Spring snow can be unpredictable. It can be slushy, icy, or even perfect powder. In the spring, it is best to plan for the unexpected. Get your skis freshly waxed (look for a warmer temperature wax) and sharpened.

6. Plan your day

In the spring, cold mornings can leave the hill super icy. And by late afternoon, the hill has turned into a slip and slide. To get the best runs in, plan a shorter mid-day ski.
