We’re loving the April snow that we’ve seen so far, and we’re having a strong late-season here in Colorado Ski Country. We have four resorts that are still open, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Aspen Highlands and Winter Park, and we’re affectionately calling this the “season that won’t quit.”
April is traditionally Colorado’s second snowiest month (after March), and it’s been living up to its reputation so far. It’s exciting for skiers and boarders that there have been such a strong storm cycles recently. Some of our areas have had up to two and a half feet in the last several days (check out the snow report here).
Three additional resorts that have announced they will re-open due to the great conditions they’re having. Copper Mountain and Powderhorn will open again for the coming weekend, and Aspen Highlands is scheduled to close this weekend, but will re-open the following weekend, which is April 27 and 28.
And while we would have loved to have these snowstorms earlier in the season as well, we’re grateful that they’ve arrived with such consistency late in the season, and will definitely take it. Colorado has one of the longest seasons in the nation, starting in October. This year Arapahoe Basin is scheduled to close June 2.
As most of our readers know, we’re a weather dependant industry, so it’s especially pleasing when we receive snowfall that helps us extend the ski season. So get out there and enjoy the conditions!
