ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colo. -- Arapahoe Basin Ski Area will reopen its lifts for a bonus weekend on June 10-12 because of strong spring snowfall.

“This spring has been perfect for maintaining our snow surface in terms of the temperatures and timing of our snowfall,” Arapahoe Basin Chief Operating Officer Alan Henceroth said. "I am excited that we’re able to offer skiing and snowboarding to our guests well into June.”

The lifts will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. all three days. The ski area will close for the season on June 12. It opened for the season on Oct. 29, one of the first in North America. It has received about 300 inches of snow this season.

Discounted tickets are available on the ski area's website.
