Winter Park, others extend their ski seasons to April 27
WINTER PARK, Colo. — Winter Park Resort announced Wednesday it would keep its slopes open until April 27 because of the generous snowfall throughout the season.
Initially, the resort planned to end its ride season April 20. However, after over 28 feet of snow — landing just 7 inches from the historical average — it decided to extend the season a week.
In March alone, Winter Park Resort said it received over five feet of fresh powder, which will help sustain riding conditions through the new closing date.
Despite extending the season a week, the resort said its Springtopia celebration will still happen the weekend of April 19 through 20.
Breckenridge announced its season would be extending until April 27.
Copper Mountain also announced it would reopen for one additional weekend after closing April 20. It will be open for the weekend of April 25-27.
On Thursday, Aspen Snowmass announced it would extend its season by two weekends and will be open April 26-27 and May 3-4.
The current scheduled last day at Loveland Ski Area is May 4.
