Two Aspen Skico mountains will see a week long season extension this year, thanks to above average snowfalls for every month since the season began. According to the Aspen Times, Aspen Highlands will continue operations until April 16, falling in line with the closure at Snowmass, and lifts will run on Aspen Mountain until April 23.
Aspen Highlands currently sits at a 78″ base depth, with the snowy months of March and April still yet to pass. Aspen Mountain, on the other hand, sits at a 48″ base depth.
“This has been one of the best winters for consistent snow that we’ve seen in recent history. Every month since October has exceeded the monthly average snowfall, and temperatures have remained cool overall. With March and April snowfall still to come, it looks promising to be an outstanding spring.” – SVP of mountain operations Katie Ertl
Based on total snowfalls this season, more resorts throughout Colorado are likely to join the crew of extended ski season. If that happens, you can bet we’ll let you know here.
