Spring is in the air! Well, it’s more like summer with the high 20s temps and light until 10 but that’s just Golden. We do everything to the max. Spring usually starts rearing its sun-bleached head late March and by early May the only thing telling you it’s not August is the snow-capped mountains in the distance. Yes, a fresh start. Comfortable temps, blue skies, no bugs. What to do? Everything. The answer is do everything.
Blog: Spring Activities
It’s mid-April and the lifts just stopped spinning. You look up at the blanket of white stuck from tip to toe to the mountain you love so, wearing moguls like spring goosebumps under a perfect sun and two and a half metres of snow, “How could this be over?” you ask yourself. Someone passing by whispers that it doesn’t have to be, winking coyly at the touring skis in their car.
Spring in Golden just may be my favourite season. The air is warm, the sun is shining, and the activities are plentiful. The spring skiing at KHMR has been glorious. Dawn Mountain Nordic centre only stopped grooming last week. Meanwhile, people have been dusting off their bikes, kayaks, hiking shoes and golf clubs. In fact, the Golden Golf Club opened just this past weekend.
