Perhaps La Nina deserves all of the credit (or all of the blame, depending on your perspective), but we like to think that our great state simply offers something for everyone--no matter what season the calendar says it is. Sure, SoCal sunshine can't be beat, but that only works if the beach is your cup of tea. Whistler provides great opportunities combing gravity and snowpack, but if there's any apres-ski soaking to be had, it will require a hot tub. Not so in Boise in May. Still clinging to Old Man Winter? Spend Saturday schussing the vertical at Brundage Mountain in McCall. Need a head start on your summer tan lines? Dedicate Sunday to splashing around in the local water park. Either way, don't forget the sunscreen--whether it feels more like winter or more like summer, it's really just spring.
