Can’t make it for the closing festivities? April skiing and riding is the season’s best-kept secret. Compared to midseason, there are plenty of advantages to a late-season ski trip to Snowmass. Here are a few of our top reasons for loving April in Snowmass:
#1: Great rates on lodging. Fewer people thinking about skiing translates to less demand for lodging, meaning April offers some of the best deals of the season. Discounts of up to 30% are available through our specials page, found here.
#2: Ideal conditions and uncrowded slopes. Some of the best conditions can be found late in the season, after the snow has been piling up on the slopes for months. Yes, winter storms still roll through in April to freshen things up, but the chance of warm, sunny days is higher. And, while you’ll rarely encounter a lift line in Snowmass at any point in the season, in April you’ll have an even better chance of getting first tracks on a powder day or having fresh corduroy all to yourself.
#3: Ideal après conditions. What better way to end the ski day than with a cold beverage and some appetizers on a sun-splashed patio? And, with warm afternoon temperatures and daylight until well into the evening, there’s no need to hurry home.
#4: More time to ski or ride. Starting Presidents’ Day Weekend, many lifts at Aspen Snowmass stay open a half-hour later. With last chair at 4/4:15 pm (and still plenty of time for après, see above), you’ve got every reason to stretch out the afternoon’s slushy bumps session for one more run.
