Two years ago, everything abruptly shut down in mid-March, curtailing fun and wacky events usually associated with spring and skiing.
Last year, although resorts were open, there was no true socializing, no crowd gathering, and again, no real spring zaniness.
But this season, with pandemic restrictions being relaxed and folks feeling more comfortable, many of the traditional spring events are coming back. Families can find pond skimming, rail jams, races, treasure hunts, music festivals, costumed events and more at many of New England’s resorts. As the sun gets warmer and temperatures rise, hanging around on trail sides, decks and patios is a great way to chill between runs or at the end of the day.
Thsee events provide opportunities to be entertained or entertain others as well as to test your grit and skill. Do you want to show off in a mini-pipe, test your skill in a banked slalom or brave the icy water in a pond skim? Maybe just sitting on the patio, beverage in hand, and listening to music is more your style. Whatever your preferences, you’ll find plenty of ways to celebrate spring at your favorite resort, or perhaps try a new one.
