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.
