Tag: Closing dates
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.”
Colorado Ski Country USA resorts embraced the latest snowstorm to sweep through the state, welcoming April snow showers that picked up where a snow-laden March left off. The ongoing snowfall enabled several Colorado resorts to re-open recently on select weekends after their official closing dates, and the past couple of days have left further powder deposits for guests to enjoy.
As the season winds down and the weather begins to slowly warm up, resorts are beginning to close throughout Colorado Ski Country. Loveland and Arapahoe Basin will remain open into May as usual, continuing the tradition of Colorado having one of the longest seasons in the nation, but many others will start to close in the next couple of weeks. Check out the list below so you know where to head before the 2013-14 season is in the books.
Buttermilk closing day will be BAD – in the best sense of the word – as Bacon Appreciation Day is back for the third year in a row. The 3rd Annual Bacon Appreciation Day, featuring bacon snacks and samples all day long, including bacon waffles, bacon samples, sundaes with bacon sprinkles and a bacon and beer happy hour, will take place on closing day, Sunday, April 7. The day culminates with a rail jam at the base, then the Bacon Bartender’s Brawl, with music from DJ Ronnie.
