    Don your favorite beachy shirt or superhero look for the themed weekends schussing now, at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadow.

    IF YOU'RE SKIING IN JANUARY, just after an intense cold front has wailed on through the area, bringing with it several inches of flakery as well as a particular briskness that is out-brisking the briskness that existed just a day or so before, you're not going to be thinking about costuming up before hitting the hills. You're going to have on your coziest thermals, and moisture-deterring super-gloves, and a few waffle-knit layers to keep out the aforementioned brisk-a-tude. But April, and May, are not January, you might have heard. And while the first month of the year typically brings a certain sartorial look to the slopes, one that's focused on warmth, so does skiing in the springtime. It's a different vibe altogether, and many skiers eschew longer sleeves on those balmier May days.

    "THE SPRING SKIING CAPITAL,"Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows, for a chance to schuss during one of the destination's photo-ready themed weekends. They're on now, and there are more to go, with "Neon" rounding out the end of April, "Denim" landing the weekend of May 19-21, and "Super Heroes" flying in just ahead of the start of summertime. Live tunes and a convivial atmosphere shall reign each weekend, as will the opportunities to pose in your lively look, poles and all, for a snapshot or two or 20. Springtime slope high jinks are different from the ski scene at the heart of brrr-ful winter, and we're seeing that now, near Lake Tahoe, as the shorter sleeves and wackier wear make a slope-centered showing.
