Normally at this time of year, resorts' Facebook feeds are full of mountain biking, spring walks and mountain flowers - however, this year seems to be different. When I looked this morning at the Ski Independence Facebook news feed, it was awash with video, photos and comments on the current fantastic spring skiing conditions. Here are just a few:

Whistler Blackcomb - Bluebird skiing on Blackcomb in Whistler.

Spring 2011 Park Edit from Whistler Blackcomb on Vimeo. Mammoth Mountain - May-bruary? 4"-8" overnight. Almost 54 FEET this "winter". We're open daily until July 4, the longest season of any resort in the US: winter 10-11 is 255 days!

Working to get KT open on time, and upper mountain will start on a hold due to wind... getting gusts upwards of 40 mph up there. POWDER DAY!!! 

Squaw Late Season from Jon M on Vimeo. Aspen/Snowmass - Whipping around in a heli with our friends from Brain Farm Cinema shooting for "Art of Flight". The movie is going to blow your mind. -Dave [caption id="attachment_2156" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Aerial view of Aspen Snowmass[/caption] Visit Tirol - Who said winter is over? 30cm+ fresh on Stubai glacier and more of the same at Hintertux over the weekend!!
