Spring Bows Out with a Bang!

Spring Bows Out with a Bang!

Snowmass Ski Patrol testing out 9 inches in spring storm
How does six feet in two days sound? Many resorts extend their spring skiing season as snow blankets much of the West.

Resorts in Nevada, Colorado, Utah and California, amoung other places, have extended their seasons after a rash of spring storms blanketed their slopes in more snow than some have seen all season. Aspen Mountain, which was slated to close this Sunday, will open its lifts for the weekends of April 17–18 and April 24–25 after getting 16 inches of snow in the past 72 hours. Alta, in Utah’s snow-covered Cottonwood Canyon, announced a bonus weekend April 23–25 after receiving 70 inches in the past 72 hours, and nearby Park City is extending its season to April 18 after getting 40 inches in the past three days.

The greater Tahoe region has been blessed with close to seven feet of snow in seven days. And thanks to 20 inches of fresh powder in just the past 48 hours, Tahoe's Heavenly resort has extended its season a week until April 25. Its neighbor, Squaw Valley, has received 32 inches in the past three days, and, with an incredible base of 181 inches, Squaw won't close until May 9. Finally, the little mountain located just outside of sin city Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort has extended its season to April 18—its latest closing date ever. Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort opened on October 9 to tie Colorado’s Loveland Resort with the earliest opening for a ski resort this season. However, the undefeatable Loveland plans to run its lifts into early May…for those tireless skiers who refuse to surrender to summer.
