Hit The Spring Snow With Skiinfo!

With Spring nearly here, it’s easy to forget that the ski season still has three months left to run at plenty of resorts around the world. 2010 has been a bumper year with record snowfalls in many resorts, so with Spring sunshine on the way and low prices and empty slopes the norm, here’s Skiinfo’s suggestions for 20 possible ski destinations in 10 countries right through to June!







  • Stryn (
    With several of Norway’s larger ski areas open in to May, Stryn Summerski Centre doesn’t actually open until Friday, May 30th, one of three summer ski destinations in the country. Stryn summer ski opens on Friday, May 30th. The resort has a snow park, off piste and alpine skiing opportunities and was once named the best pre-season training resort by legendary Italian slalom ski racer Alberto Tomba.

  • Cairngorm (
    Scotland is coming out of its coldest since 1962 and the snow is lying several metres deep. In years gone by there’s been skiing on midsummer night, June 21st, and that’s looking good in 2010 too. The slopes have remained open in to May in recent years with less snow than this and have eventually closed due to lack of adequate skier numbers rather than lack of snow.




  • Arapahoe Basin (
    A fun Colorado ski area with some of the world’s highest ski lifts, a great laid back vibe and often open in to June.

  • Mammoth Mountain (
    One of half-a-dozen US ski areas that get so much snow they usually stay open well in to May or June, 2010 is looking like a great year for Mammoth which recently passed the ‘400 inches of snow this season’ mark (that’s over 13 feet/10 metres). The area has stayed opened to Independence Day, July 4th, on occasion.

  • Squaw Valley USA (
    Squaw Valley celebrates 50 years since staging the Winter Olympics itself this year, an amazing achievement back in 1960 as the resort had only been created a few years previously. It’s made an art form out of its Spring Season with cool California sunshine culture up at High Camp well in to May, sometimes June. 2010 is looking good as the snow depth is currently over four metres.

In the US, Mammoth Mountain is one of the premier skiing resorts in California. It definitely lives up to its name- HUGE! It has great terrain, trees, blue sky, wide and long runs. Thanks to an incredible snowfall throughout the 2009/10 winter season, Mammoth Mountain will extend its winter operations for daily skiing and riding to July 4, 2010. It is better to make Mammoth Mountain reservations as early as possible. I found that the ski resort also offers several pet friendly Mammoth condo rentals. Ski- in ski-out houses are the way to go!! Definitely the place to visit for skiing with family and friends!
