Ski.com Announces Top 5 Picks For Spring Skiing Events In The Mountains

February 27, 2013

Travelers can save up to 33 percent on lodging by booking their spring ski vacation through Ski.com

ASPEN, Colo., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Ski.com (www.ski.com), North America’s largest independent provider of mountain vacations, is offering deep discounts during the best spring events at ski resorts. While current conditions across most of North America are far from spring-like thanks to several recent storms, Ski.com is offering savings of up to 33 percent on resort lodging in addition to its everyday discounts on lift tickets, equipment rentals, flights and more for travelers interested in planning ahead.

“March and April are excellent months for a ski or snowboard trip due to great snow conditions, warm daytime temperatures, and seemingly endless on- and off-mountain activities for visitors of all ages,” said Dan Sherman, managing director of marketing for Ski.com. “Spring skiers and riders can expect great conditions this year, as February storms delivered big snowfall totals, and March is the snowiest winter month on average for Western U.S. ski resorts.*”

In addition to exceptional savings, Ski.com is providing a guide to this year’s best spring events in the mountains so travelers know where to toast the seasonal warm up and celebrate the conclusion of a fantastic ski season.
