BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. -- It’s that time of year when ski resorts begin to shut down for the season.
At least three of them will close for the season Monday. Several others will do the same in the days to come.
For some, it has been a challenging season because of the lack of snow.
That was not the case at Eldora Mountain Resort near Nederland. Some parts of the mountain got up to 6 inches Saturday night. That meant a great day Sunday.
“It’s a pleasant surprise, but we’ve just been blessed all week by a ton of snow," Eldora spokesman Sam Bass said. "Great weather and we have some of the best conditions in the state right now."
Many resorts have had to deal with drought-like conditions. Despite the lack of snow on some days, Eldora said its crowds have remained steady.
