1) good accumulated snow & more fresh snow - March is known to be the snowiest month of the season
2) warm sunshine = goggle tan & less layers 😎
3) fun weekend events like live music & excuses to dress up in silly costumes 🎵
There's no better way to celebrate spring. Starting in March through May many ski resorts host a variety of spring events that include live music, skiing across water, ski/snowboard competitions, & parades. Let's see what some ski resorts are offering....
Aspen Mountain has events all through March & April - major ski races, fun amateur ski competitions, & music weekends.
This weekend (March 6th) starts it out with America's Uphill which is a 2.5 mile & 3000' vertical climb up Aspen Mountain. If climbing isn't your style, watching it & cheering people on can be fun too!
To follow, the next weekend (March 11-14th), is the Aprés Ski Cocktail Classic which involves all things aprés ski like pop-up bars, mixologist competitions & sampling, spirit paired dinners, & the Great Aprés Ski Pub Crawl & Cocktail Competition. So if you are half & half with the skiing & aprés ski, this is the event for you!
At the end of March, Aspen will be hosting the U.S. Alpine Tech Championship. This event is a major ski racing competition for the elite racers like Michaela Shiffrin & Ted Ligety, of the U.S. Ski Team. These racers are top notch & exciting to watch!
Finally, to finish out the month of March, the BudLight Spring Jam will be from March 20-27th and have concerts, parties, & friendly competitions almost every night in Aspen Snowmass. It is fun for the whole family!
If you can make it to Aspen in March, it is an exciting month not to miss!
Vail Mountain Ski Resort has a couple spring events starting at the end of March into April so if you have time, go from Aspen to Vail & get a well-rounded ski holiday. 😉
On March 28th, Pink Vail, the biggest ski day to conquer cancer, is an all-day event bringing nearly 3,000 people to the resort participating in costume contests, deck parties, live music, fundraising, & more. This event benefits the Shaw Cancer Center to enhance patient care & programming where all of the Pink Vail donations & registration fees goes toward. It will be a warm, fun, fulfilling event!
Following, Taste of Vail & Spring Back to Vail will happen from April 1-4 & 9-12, where you can experience the exceptional foods of Vail, CO & enjoy the sunny skiing & aprés ski celebrations!
Then Powabunga, a music festival, will be Vail's closing weekend (April 17-19) which will host big names, like Fleetwood Mac, Griz, & Claptone, playing all weekend to finish out the season with a bang!
