Ask CS: Best spring snow?

Q: Hey Colorado Snow, stoked to see you on Askablogr! After a big snow winter here in the Northwest it looks like we’ll see an early spring. Any predictions for where to find the best spring snow in CO?

A: Haha, the best spring snow in Colorado is going to be in Utah.

But seriously, the easy answer is Wolf Creek. They've already got 464 inches this year (that's roughly 39 feet) and I don't see why it would stop.

If you can't make the trip that far, I'd say Arapahoe Basin and Loveland are always great for spring skiing. Both mountains (on the divide) hold their snow into May and June (some years even July) as they're so high up. It's not uncommon to see people hanging out in the A-Basin parking lot ("the beach") having a great time.

So, if you're looking for a great spring ambiance with snow through the spring, I'd say visit Arapahoe Basin.
