The dark, cold winter months are gone. But the skis shouldn't be put away just yet. The late-season, from about mid-March to the when the last lifts stop turning, is not only still a great time to ski, but is maybe the best time of the year to hit the slopes. After this season’s remarkable snowfall, resorts will still provide incredible skiing through the spring, offering the chance to shed a couple layers, switch to warm temp wax, grab some sunscreen and enjoy the best of Ski Country.

There’s something special about all the ski areas on the 5th Grade Passport, and Eldora has its own charm too. Known as Boulder’s backyard, it’s just 21 miles from downtown, up Boulder Canyon Drive. And if you prefer to skip the drive, you can hop the RTD bus from one of three stops ((with free weekend parking) in Boulder and be dropped off just steps from the Alpenglow chairlift. Or consider carpooling with a friend or two and get prime parking (for vehicles of 3 or more) right

At most Colorado ski resorts, there's a place where you can find powder days after a storm - a place you can reach without hiking a half hour to the outer reaches of the mountain.

We're talking about the trees.
