Q: Is there any chance that the usual Summit County mtn’s will stay open through the end of April, besides A-Basin and Loveland? My kids have Easter break from 4/21-25. What about Breck? Vail? B-Creek?
A: Unfortunately the Summit County mountains are going to close around the second weekend of April. Even by the first weekend things have been getting pretty slushy (maybe not this year!).
You can check out the resort closing dates down the right side of Colorado Snow (along with the conditions) or visit the resort pages at Colorado Ski. Here's the dates:
- April 6th, 2008: Steamboat
- April 13th, 2008: Aspen, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain, Eldora, Keystone, Vail, Winter Park
- April 20th, 2008: Breckenridge
I wouldn't rule out the possibility of them extending another week or two (they extended the deadlines on the pass sales twice this season) but I doubt the snow is going to hang out that long.
Sorry the timing isn't better and thanks for the question.
One reply on “Ask CS: Closing dates through April 2008?”
Well the snow held up in Winter Park, it snowed into June, but they won’t stay open later than mid April
