Scoop on Ski resort closing dates
Well...the ski season will be winding down in the next few weeks here in Summit County (except, of course, for A-Basin - they aren't closing until June!)
Some of my favorite skiing happens as we get close to closing day - the days are warmer, the snow is softer and most of the big crowds are gone. And best of all - lots of fun music and events happening at all of the resorts.
ALSO - of note....the real estate inventory in Summit County always increases after the resorts close down. Keep your eyes open for your perfect mountain getaway!
Here's the scoop on closing dates from The Summit Daily News:
Several local resorts have announced their tentative closing dates, along with events to coincide with one of the best seasons in recent memory.
Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, which is shooting for a June 2 closing date, will celebrate closing weekend with live music on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 at the Mountain Goat Plaza. The springtime event will feature a free, family-friendly concert from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, visit ArapahoeBasin.com.
Ski Cooper’s closing weekend celebrations through April 7 will feature a Ski with a Ranger program and live music, along with other festivities for guests. Cooper is also offering a $25 spring daily lift ticket deal from April 1 to 7. For more information, visit SkiCooper.com
Copper Mountain Ski Resort will end its season with its traditional pond skim with a twist at its eighth annual SlopeSoakers contest. Competitors will end the season in style by skimming across floating rails on April 20. On Copper’s closing day, the Retro Shred-a-Thon will return with retro gear to raise funds for injured mountain action sports athletes. Guests are encouraged to reach out for pledges and donations to the High Fives Foundation and wear throwback gear including one-piece snowsuits, shaped snowboards, long poles and straight skis.

Loveland Ski Area will feature “Live Music at the Basin” on May 4 for its closing weekend, with a live performance from A-Mac & The Height. Guests will also be able to enjoy spring skiing, drink specials and live music from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Loveland will team up with Never Summer and Toyota for the second annual Neverland Banked Slalom. The snowboard race will take place off of Lift 6 and all ages and abilities are welcome. For more information, visit SkiLoveland.com.
Keystone plans to close April 7- which has some shaking their heads with all of the snow we've had here....but to make up for it, Vail Resorts has extended the closing date at Breckenridge to Memorial Day!
See you on the slopes!
