Springtime in Summit County is a little different than most places. At elevations above 9,000 feet spring showers are still snow showers and there won’t be any gardening going on for a couple more months yet. So how do you make the most of springtime in Summit County? Here are four must do’s around here.
1. Hit the slopes.
We often get big dumps of snow in the spring followed by a beautiful blue sky day and warmer temperatures. That makes for a fantastic day on the slopes. Pick a mountain, we have four in the county and three more nearby. You won’t get bored even if you ski every day.
2. Wear sunscreen.
You are closer to the sun here and without sunscreen you’ll end up with a great goggle tan before summer. It’s better for your complexion to douse yourself with sunscreen though. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your neck and under your chin. The sun reflects off the snow and can burn you in unsuspecting areas.
3. Dress in layers.
We still have chilly nights with lows in the single digits and teens. Afternoon sunshine and temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s will warm you up when you’re active outdoors. If you dress in layers you can take them off or put them on as needed to regulate your temperature throughout the day.
4. Call The Mountain Living Team.
