Spring break is coming up quick, but some students still don’t know what to do with their week of freedom.[slideshow:1268]
While tons of college students flock to Florida beaches, maybe you have something else in mind. If you’re looking for a bit more action, but don’t want to sacrifice the awesome parties and events, you might want to head to a ski resort.
Many mountains across the continent are still getting fresh snow with a side of spring sunshine. They’re getting ready to host some of the best competitions during the day and some of the craziest parties at night, while offering spring breakers some quality time on the slopes and great goggle tans.
In anticipation of this weeklong break from school, we put together a list of 10 amazing ski spots for spring break.
The resort that snagged the top spot on our best ski resorts list is also a major spring break hot spot. In addition to offering the most skiable acres on the continent, Whistler Blackcomb has a solid 57-inch base (despite disappointing snow totals in the area) and is hosting the Whistler World Ski and Snowboard Festival from April 10-19. The 10-day festival will feature live music from some amazing artists and food and drink specials. Oh and did we mention that the drinking age is 19?
This wild west mountain town offers college kids one of the best spring break options in the country. Jackson Hole has seen nearly 300-inches of snow this winter making it a top spring ski spot. As if great conditions weren’t enough of a draw, the resort is hosting 31+ bands in the 31 days of March—they’re calling it March RADness. Along with the free live music, there are deals on everything from airfare to drinks—we all know college kids could use a good deal.
