Skiing in Mid-April

Sugarloaf in Mid April

Erin and I went skiing for the last time this season on Sunday. While flowers are blooming and grass is turning green in Southern New Hampshire, Sugarloaf in Maine (4 hours from home) still has enough of a snow base layer to be open for skiing.  Although the snow is more like mashed potato slush. And some of the lower slopes require path finding skills in order to not run into grass. My ski did find a rock at one point.

Chairlift

There was also RaggaeFest going on while we were there, so that was entertaining when I called it a day and let Erin get some more runs in.

RaggaeFest

I think they are open for a couple more weekends… if you like skiing in bad snow and don’t mind the occasional exposed rocks or gravel.

  1. You are crazy. Once that snow starts melting I don’t want to even look at my skis for another 6 months.

    • Other than the nasty slush consistency Spring skiing is great… it’s not cold and miserable out while you ski. Some people even do it in t-shirts and shorts 🙂
