The forecast may be calling for temperatures in the 20s and low 30s this week, but promises of sunshine-- and area ski hills' annual spring bashes this weekend-- ensure us that the seasons are indeed shifting.

Nub's Nob's yearly "Mardi Gras" party on the slopes will take place on Saturday, March 18. This family-fun day features a host of beloved traditions, from the "soaker cup" ski across the manmade Scarface Pond, to costume contests, silly slalom events for kids and adults to fat tire bike racing. Events start at 10 a.m. and run throughout the day; for a full schedule visit www.nubsnob.com

Boyne Highlands will get in the spring spirit with Krazy Days, also on Saturday, March 18. Face painting, inflatable fun, jump competitions and Nastar racing, plus costume contests, skiing across the pond and additional events are all on tap for the day, with a zoo bar party happening off the slopes from 4-8 p.m. with live entertainment from Metro Rockway. For a full list of registration and event time details, visit www.boyne.com

Down the road at Boyne Mountain, the party goes all weekend long, with the annual Carnival days, March 17-19. On hill parties, a massive slush cup, zip line rides, late night dance parties and even a "last man standing blood mary bar" on Sunday; Carnival Weekend has a reputation as a wild, fun way to say goodbye to the ski season. Details at www.boyne.com

Weather permitting, Nub's Nob plans to continue skiing and snowboarding through early April. Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain have not announced official closing dates yet.
