Colorado ski resorts extend closing day

Thanks to an extra 1.5-plus-feet snow in the last week at many Colorado resorts, extended-season announcements are starting to trickle in. Aspen Snowmass, Copper Mountain and Vail are among the first to report the good news, but we anticipate more announcements to come. Here are some more details on extended and closing-day dates.

Aspen Highlands | April 10 (closing-day party), reopens April, 23–24 + April 30–May 1

The official and famously rowdy Aspen Highlands Day Closing Party will still be celebrated on April 10, but the resort will reopen April 22–24, and again April 30–May 1. Highlands will not be open April 16–17.

Aspen Mountain | April 17

Beaver Creek | April 10

Breckenridge | April 24

Buttermilk | April 3

Crested Butte | April 3

Copper Mountain | April 17 (closing-day party), reopens April 22–24

Copper Mountain’s annual spring festival, Sunsation, will still be held April 16–17 as planned, but the resort will reopen the following weekend thanks to 16 inches of new snow in the last week.

Keystone | April 10

Steamboat | April 10

Snowmass | April 10

Telluride | April 3

Vail | April 17

Thanks to 17 inches of fresh snow in the past seven days, Vail is extending its season to April 17, but the annual Spring Back to Vail closing-day celebrations and World Pond Skimming Championships will still be held April 8–10.

Winter Park | April 24

Winter Park proper will stop the bullwheel on April 24, but Mary Jane stays open until May 7.

You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
