2018 End of Ski Season To-Do List

Say goodbye to the ski season the right way! We’ve got an end of season to-do list for you.

We’ve had killer pow days like the one Christmas Day brought. February was just full of fresh snow after it dropped over 5 feet of snow. Even mid-March brought over 3 feet of freshies our way!

Nevertheless, the ski season will end eventually. As we accept this fact, we can look forward to the fun of spring in the mountains and the events it brings. If you’re looking to start winding down the season and go out with a bang, check out our End of Season To-Do List!

  1. Monster Energy® Spring Splash® + New Belgium® Throwback Day

Normally getting soaked on the mountain is just asking for a bad day, but Spring Splash is a little different. This pond-skimming, animal-floaty-dodging, obstacle-course-racing event is the day to make a splash. When there are hundreds of people in the crowd cheering you on, the thrill and excitement will make it all worth it.  And if you aren’t so into the whole ride across the pond gig, you can come watch Cowboys, Superheros, and all the other goofy getups attempt the infamous buoyancy test.

If you’re all for fun, but want to ensure you stay dry, join us for New Belgium® Throwback Day! Go find yourself an 80’s onesie, a rad puffy jacket, or a neon fanny pack, and show off for the ultimate costume contest. You could win a season pass for next year!

Or be like this legend and combine the two. ↓

  1. Bust A Move

Typically we ask folks to bust out snow dances early season, but come April, we want you to shake your groove thang just because of all the musical fun we are having on the mountain. April is filled with concerts around WPR.

Spring Bash + Splash’s concert lineup features a wide range of artists, perfect to accompany our 3 awesome weekends of events and activities.

Saturday, April 14th: Passfire – Winter Park Resort Base, 3-5pm

Saturday, April 21st: Electric Avenue – Winter Park Resort Base, 3-5pm

  1. Keep Riding Jane side!

Sure, Spring Bash and Splash might be the ultimate 4-week long celebration of the ski season, but the skiing isn’t done when the festivities conclude on April 22nd. The season continues on the Jane side for an extended TWO WEEKS! So if you’re close to your day-goal, or just not ready to say goodbye yet, you’ll have until May 6th to get out and ride at the legendary Mary Jane.
