Memorial Day weekend typically signifies the start of summer, but it’ll still feel like winter at several ski resorts that have enough recent snow to stay open for the holiday weekend.
After receiving 13 inches of fresh powder from this week’s snowstorm, Breckenridge Resort announced plans to not only stay open for Memorial Day weekend, but the two weekends after as well.
The resort will remain open daily through May 27, then shift to a weekend schedule on May 31-June 2 and June 7-9. In all, more than 450 inches fell at the resort over the 2018-2019 season.
“It has been one of the best winter seasons I can remember during my more than 25-year career, and we are thrilled to keep it going for our guests and passholders,” said John Buhler, vice president and chief operating officer at Breckenridge Ski Resort.
Arapahoe Basin has also seen its share of recent snow and will remain open daily through at least June 2.
"All along our plan has been to stay open 7 days a week through June 2," a blog post from the resort reads. "If conditions are still good June 2 and there is plenty of snow, we will stay open longer. Well, conditions now are incredible and we feel good about staying open longer than June 2."
A-Basin hasn't officially announced a closing day, but said it will remain open for at least one more weekend after that on June 7-9.
Aspen Mountain received a foot of new snow recently and will be open May 25 through May 27.
In addition to opening 130 acres of skiable terrain, Aspen Mountain's summer operations are expected to kick off this weekend.
And if your weekend plans lead you to Durango, Purgatory Resort will be open on Saturday and Sunday.
The resort in southwest Colorado has had more than 15 inches fall in a 72-hour stretch. The Village Express lift will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
According to Purgatory Resort's website, lift tickets for adults are just $29.
