Spring skiing may sound a risky pick when it comes to skiing holiday. People generally think that January and February are the best months to ski. But why not hit the slopes a little bit later in the season? Maybe in March or April? You get less crowds on the ski runs, cheaper prices and just as much snow. But where to you may ask. Choose a ski resort which offers high mountains where the temperatures stay constantly below 0° C.
Bormio is with no doubt a great pick for spring skiing: the slopes stretch up to 3,012 meters and the latest and copious snowfalls (50 cm on February 28 and 28 cm on March 4) let us have high hopes on the final part of the season.
Spring skiing: first the sport and then the relax
The temperatures of March 2017 are gently rising but so much that they would compromise skiing. The ski runs at 3,000 meters are well protected by a nice cold weather always below 0.
In the morning the snow surface stays compact while it tends to get soft from midday, especially on the valley runs. And so, our suggestion is to hit the pistes during the morning and then stop in restaurant on the slopes for some nice local food. In the afternoon, grab a deck chair and enjoy sunbathing. Don’t forget to use the protective lotion because the combination of sun and snow reflection may be very dangerous for your skin.
Tanning on the slopes is amazing but also we would like to recommend a top after-ski experience: the unique relaxation of thermal baths:
