Spring storm means June skiing at Arapahoe Basin; resort has gotten 419 inches of snow this season

KEYSTONE, Colo. - The spring storm is bringing good news after causing havoc.

In a statement Tuesday, officials at the Arapahoe Basin ski resort said after receiving two feet of snow, they will be open the weekend of June 6-8. Weekday skiing, though, ends June 1.

A-Basin chief operating officer Alan Henceroth says the season may go even further at the Continental Divide resort. If that happens, lifts will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only.

Since the season opened in October, A-Basin has received 419 inches of snow, well above the 307 inches it got during the 2012-13 season.

The spring storm brought up to 3 feet of snow to the Rockies and thunderstorms and tornadoes in the Midwest, shutting off power, stranding travelers and causing at least one fatal accident.
