colorado-late-ski-seasonDo you have ski resort closing dates marked with a sad face on your calendar? Not quite ready to pack up the ski gear for 2016? Wish you could hit the slopes a few more times before the season ends?

Well your in luck! Due to a late season snow storm named Troy, many Colorado ski resorts are extending their ski season.  Some area’s of the Colorado rockies got more than 2 feet of powder in the late march snow storm. Ski Resorts like Aspen Highlands have fantastic ski conditions and will open up on weekends for two weeks after their April 10th closing date.

Thanks El NIÑO! A fitting goodbye to one of the most snowtastic ski season in recent memory.


Here’s what a few Colorado ski resorts are saying…


Vail Mountain

“Our snow conditions have just continued to get better and better throughout the month and we’ve had some of the best skiing and snowboarding of the year in the past couple of weeks,” said Chris Jarnot, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Vail Mountain, “It’s too good right now not to stay open and give our passholders the gift of another week to get out and enjoy what has been an amazing season at Vail.”

Aspen Highlands

We’re excited to announce Aspen Highlands will reopen for two bonus weekends. The Highlands will have its schedule closing on April 10th, then reopen for weekends only- April 23 – 24 and April 30 – May 1. Make the most of every remaining day in this amazing 160-day season!

Here are some additional extended closing dates:

Breckenridge – April 24

Copper Mountain – April 24

Monarch – April 10
