Spring looks a bit different in Colorado than it does in many parts of the country. One day we'll have sunshine and 80 degrees and the next we'll get fresh snow in the mountains. While skiing in May isn't for everyone and the snow isn't the champagne powder the Colorado Rockies are famous for, a day on the slopes of Arapahoe Basin is something that everyone should experience at least once. It is a bucket list kind of day to carve a few turns wearing shorts or apres skiing on the sundeck in your bikini.
Skiing is just part of the attraction to a spring day on the mountain. Working on your tan while enjoying a BBQ at 11,000 feet is another. It can also be a thrill just to get up high on a glorious spring day in the mountains for a hike, a bike or a picnic.
