What’s Better Than Bluebird Powder Days? If you like ski vacations with mild, gorgeous weather on your mountain escape, spring is an awesome time to ski or snowboard. The days are longer and warmer, the snowpack is often the deepest of the season, there will be more options for outdoor dining, and spring dumps typically serve up some of the best powder days of the season. This year, ditch the spring doldrums of sitting on a crowded beach and head to the mountains instead. Ski ya soon!
