Spring Shredding: 5 North American Resorts You Can Ride Right Now

Where To Ride This Spring

Easy there, partner. Spring has sprung, but your snowboard season doesn't have to be over. Here are five resorts in North America that are still turning their lifts, keeping the shred dream alive and well this spring season.

While your some of your friends may have stowed their shred gear in exchange for biking and dusty desert days, there's still plenty of snow out there, and the riding is better than you may think.

This round-up of resorts features those with the most snow, and the ones that will stay open until mid-May or longer.

Check 'em out and let us know where you'll be riding this spring in the comments.

Snowbird
Utah
Open until: May 13 (Potentially longer, snow permitting)

With the claim to fame as "The Longest Season in Utah" Snowbird is living up to the hype, and delivering this spring. Still boasting a 100" base, Snowbird is stacked with soft snow that is ripe for the pillaging. The vast terrain features a multitude of side-hits, long-ass groomers, and plenty of little knolls to huck your meat off. One of the best parts of Snowbird is that there is barely anyone at the mountain. Walk-on trams are pretty much guaranteed, so you can hot lap all the best zones and get your fill of spring stoke.

Mammoth Mountain
California
Open until: May 28 (Potentially longer, snow permitting)


Mammoth is always one of our favorite late spring shred destinations. This season is no different as they are still offering top-to-bottom riding and super fun hot laps through the park. With lots of sun and warm temps, it's the perfect place to get your spring shred on.

Photo from: @mammothmountain: Operations this Monday through Friday include Broadway Express [1], Stump Alley Express [2], Face Lift Express [3], Unbound Express [6], Discovery Chair [11], Chair 23 and the Panorama Gondola spinning from 8:30a-4p. Enjoy some of the best spring skiing and riding in the country right now!

Squaw Valley
California
Open until: May 28 (Potentially longer, snow permitting)


Squallywood goes off in the springtime because of its laid-back, fun, party vibes, and excellent snow conditions. Whether you're trying to laps the lifts, or post up at the pool and hot tub at the top of the mountain, Squaw is the place to be for late season sending.

Mt. Bachelor
Oregon:
Open until: May 27 (Potentially longer, snow permitting)


Mt. Bachelor ain't giving it up easy, and is still providing the goods for late season riding. Their stellar snowpack combined with sunny skies and over 3,000 acres of terrain are perfect for spring sprays. With all the parking lot parties, and fun tours of the Cone from the base, and there's no reason not to visit Bachelor before they close.

Whistler
British Columbia
Open until: May 21 (Potentially longer, snow permitting)


Oh, Canada. How we love thee, and especially Whistler when its firing this late in the season. With consistent snowfall throughout the winter and a few sneaky late spring storms, this classic Canadian gem still has a bunch of terrain that is open. You can ride hot pow in the morning, and then lap the park late into the afternoon. If you're into the spring season for the apres scene, Whistler is the place for you. Anywhere you look is practically a party, so if you head up there this spring, don't forget to pack your drinking boots too.

There's something special about spring boarding, so we’re off to shred some before it's all over.
