Less competition, the deepest snowpack of the year and longer daylight… March is our favorite month. If your forte is a mix of untracked lift accessed pow and incredible backcountry skiing and boarding, March is the month to be here. Because the crowds at resorts have all but disappeared and gullies are well filled in allowing easy travel between peaks and smooth exits, its our favorite time of year.  Some of the most memorable adventures can happen in March, but it’s important to be flexible to follow the snow. On top of this, our March packages are so well priced that you’d be crazy not to go!
