Spring Skiing: Fast in the Morning, Buttery in the Afternoon

I love skiing in the winter. The crisp mornings with fluffy powder are delightful. It is great to get out on the weekend, or even mid week, after being cooped up for days on end. The freedom of gliding down the slopes is a joy.

Spring skiing is a different experience from start to end. For daytrippers, which is what I mostly , the day starts after sun up even though daylight savings has started. There is sun on both ends of the trip, driving to and from the mountain in daylight. The long low shadows of mid winter are replaced with rays from a higher angle.
