I skied A-Basin in March and it was full on spring skiing. The East Wall was closed but you could tell there was lots of potential, steep! I imagine after a big dump the area gets tracked pretty quickly. With other great resorts around I would rather spend my pow days searching for stashes in the trees at Breck or Vail. Two great things about A-Basin. First is the beach! On a spring day you'll find this area full of barbecue smoke and big smiles. There nothing better than getting a late start in the morning, skiing a couple of runs then returning to a parking lot full of tailgate parties. The second, long seasons and a snowpack that last till May. When old man winter gives up for the season but you haven't you can still get your fix at A-Basin.
