Last Wednesday marked the first day of spring. Which, of course, meant that Denver got a massive snowstorm over the weekend. But March—which is typically our state's snowiest month—is almost over, so resorts are preparing for the end of ski season and gearing up for warm-weather activities. Catch one of these events to ride the season out right.
—The Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series  ends this weekend with two don't-miss events. Friday night, MarchFourth Marching Band  will perform in downtown Aspen; then Saturday Grouplove  takes the stage to close out this popular (free) winter series. March 29—20, downtown Aspen
—Sunsation at Copper closes its season with a weekend of live music and competitions. Test your skills on the Red Bull SlopeSoakers  (rails on floating inner tubes) for a twist on the traditional pond skim. Or, don your craziest costume in the CopperMan Winter Race , where you'll navigate obstacles like a Hot Chocolate Pit and the Human Luge. First prize is a 2013-14 season pass to the resort. April 13-14, Copper Mountain
—On April 6, Steamboat will host a 50th Anniversary Fashion Show . Dig out the pre-1990's ski wear, tease your hair, and strut your stuff down the runway to celebrate Steamboat's golden anniversary. Participation is free, but you must provide a photo of your outfit with the registration form (they're serious about the vintage thing). Best outfit wins a pair of Steamboat 50th anniversary skis. April 6, Gondola Square, Steamboat
For the kids: It wouldn't be spring without a visit from the Easter Bunny, and he'll be making appearances at several mountain towns. Catch him March 31 at Arapahoe Basin , Durango , Eldora , Winter Park , Wolf Creek , Steamboat , and Granby Ranch .
