SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. - On the day after the first day of summer, Arapahoe Basin ski area wrapped up its skiing and snowboarding season.
A-Basin says this winter saw 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. That helped the resort stay open for 241 days this year.
A-Basin was the first ski area in Colorado to open for the winter season and is typically the last to close.
Resort officials extended the season past its initial June 1 closing date due to snow conditions.
