In honor of the official kick off to spring, we’re featuring some of the best mountain “beach” scenes and tailgate spots at Ikon Pass destinations. Deck out in floral outfits, grab your grills and favorite bevies, and head for the snow “beach.” If you love a good spring ski day, make sure to add these destinations to your must-visit list this year, or plan ahead for next year.
