The arrival of springtime sees most ski resorts wind down to closing for the season. As we pack away our snowboards and recall our favourite powder days of the season, it’s tinged with sadness that the snowboard won’t be out again for another 7 months or so. But on the flip side, springtime brings longer days and in the mountains it’s not the snow that brings fun.
There is of course amazing hiking, biking, climbing and general fun exploring in the mountains to be had. Springtime sees the scenery transform from white snow covered mountains to stunning lush green terrains full of wildlife. Hiking and cycling trails emerge as the snow thaws away and so whilst we miss the snow and all the fun to be had on a snowboard, the springtime brings new adventures.
The North Face has launched the Longer Days campaign which gives consumers the inspiration to run, hike, climb and explore longer this spring.
