Late-season fun to be had – Boston Herald

Gosh, no, the season is not over yet. While Mother Nature has done her best to sway us to the next season’s sports, there’s still snow to be had at most resorts, even more at those further north.

Late-season is extra fun, thanks to warmer weather and longer daylight. And while the snow may be softer and less trails open, it’s a special time of year worth getting out for.

A few events to consider as the season winds down in the east:

*Bolton Valley Resort Spring Hours: You know what’s cool about a resort with night skiing? It stays day skiing later this time of year. Bolton Valley, Vermont is a spot you can ride the chair right into a breathtaking Vermont sunset – truly a core memory experience. And with some lucky snow they’ve had lately, you’ll find plenty of tracks right up to that truly golden hour.

*70’s Spring Send Off With Motor Booty Affair: Attitash Mountain Resort in New Hampshire knows how to Apres. All season long they offer not one but two spots with live apres music and a scene for every mood. But their annual Spring send off featuring Motor Booty Affair, a nationally beloved throwback band, has been the pinnacle for two decades now.

Come dressed in 70s attire — ski in it or just apres in it or both – and dance to retro tunes from 2-5 p.m. There are prizes, special offerings and lots of fun. It’s a top end of season ski day choice.

*The Snowmelt Slush Cup and Spring Fling, Okemo, Vermont: What better way to say goodbye to winter and embrace the last snow than playing in it? Okemo  goes big with all that on April 6 when they host their annual Slush Cup from noon to 2 p.m. Sign up to take part or show up to cheer (and sometimes scream) as skiers and riders attempt to surf across a base area pond. It all wraps with a fantastic apres Spring Fling event in the Jackson Gore Courtyard from 2-5 p.m. You’ll find music, great food, sunshine and the perfect vibe. (

*Slide in a new way at Wachusett: On April 6 you can wrap your ski season at Wachusett Mountain Resort ( by joining in on (or coming out to cheer for) their annual Cardboard Box Race. Create a vehicle in which at least one person can successfully make it to the bottom of a short downhill course using only cardboard, duct tape, paint and decorations. Creativity counts! Lots of prizes, food, music and fun.
