Spring, Venture Out

5 Reasons Why Spring is the Best Time for Lessons

Sure, we’re named Winter Park, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love spring and all the fun that comes with it. Between the sunny skies, glorious views, and the easygoing atmosphere, it’s a great time to put on your boots, lock into your bindings, and discover the mountain with a few lessons from Ski + Ride School. Whether you’re a first timer or you’re looking to brush up your skills, we’ve got courses for every level and friendly experts who can help you reach your goals. Still on the fence? Here are our top five reasons to learn to ski or snowboard this spring.

1. Warm Weather

Spring means sun, blue skies, and shedding layers! Outside of the jaw-dropping views, these conditions are perfect for lessons because you’ll stay comfortable thanks to the warm rays on your back while you cruise on soft snow. That means you can focus on tips from your instructor and nail down your form, so you can embark on some solo exploration later on. Plus, you’ll head home with a sweet goggle tan (don’t forget your sunscreen and chapstick)!

2. Soft Snow

As spring rolls around, the snow gets packed down and offers less resistance which means smooth sailing for everyone. To make things even better, the sun softens the snow and gives it a velvety texture that’s great for gliding across (and more forgiving while you’re learning the ropes and gaining your balance).

3. Longer Days

When the days get longer and the sleeves get shorter, that means there’s more time for activities! After a successful day of learning how to ski or snowboard, treat yourself to a few drinks and live music at Mountaintop Après. Or, if you’re up for another adventure, explore a different side of Winter Park with tubing, sunny snowshoe tours, uphill skiing, snowcat trips, or any of our other adventures.

Still hungry for some action? We’ve got a full lineup of events all spring long like our classic Spring Bash + Splash weekends featuring everything from live concerts to costume contests.

4. Laid-Back Vibes

It’s not rocket science: Good weather leads to good vibes. You’ll see no shortage of smiles while people are out enjoying the clear skies, groomed runs, and après out on the deck. From grilling up hot dogs at parking lot tailgates to catching live music at Après at Mary Jane, everyone’s in for some good ol’ R&R at Winter Park this spring.
