SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. - Thanks to late season snow storms, Arapahoe Basin ski resort is extending its season through at least June 22.
Resort officials are adding three bonus weekends to the season: June 6-8, June 13-15 and June 20-22, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only. Weekday skiing ends June 1.
Since the season opened in October, A-Basin has received more than 440 inches of snow, well above the 307 inches it received during the 2012-13 season. In May, A-Basin had 15 days with measurable snowfall accumulations, totaling 47 inches of snow for the month.
The resort may stay open even longer, depending on conditions. A-Basin has stayed open through July 4 several times -- in 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2011.
During the “summer skiing” season, the Black Mountain Express and Lenawee Mountain lifts will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Ski and snowboard rentals will be available, but the A-Basin Snowsports School is closed.
