After a week filled with fresh snow and more on the way by the weekend, resorts in Colorado Ski Country USA are heading into the final stretch of the season with the best conditions of the year.

March and April are historically the snowiest months in Colorado, setting up a spring filled with powder and fun.

It seems almost unfair to call Winter Park the prettiest resort I've visited in my quest to get back into skiing after 25 years away.

Clearly, I wasn't the only one who saw something special on these slopes.

I’ve highlighted a few of my favorite stand-out après ski menu items below, in case you haven’t had the chance to try them yet.
