Slash, slosh and send your season into spring at the rowdiest resort closing parties in North America

It’s that bittersweet time of year; our favorite high alpine powder stashes turn to mashed potatoes, rigid corduroy hot laps become party ski playgrounds and we trade pit-vented jackets for t-shirts and bikini tops—but who doesn’t like skiing on a beach day? While springtime is great for avoiding lift lines, it’s also an ideal time to soak up some Vitamin D and perfect your goggle tan at après. So don’t fret about the bullwheel turning for the last time, join these North American ski resorts for a final blowout party. From pond skimming to live music, celebrate the end of a stoke-worthy season at your favorite resorts. Shake out your mullet and ready your best Canadian tuxedo—the biggest bashes are about to ensue.
