ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colo. - After receiving two feet of snow out of the latest spring storm, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) announced that it will extend their season. The ski area, originally slated to cease daily operations on June 1, will re-open for at least one bonus weekend June 6-8, 2014 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
"If conditions remain favorable, and people still continue to be excited about skiing and riding this spring, our hope is to take this season even further," said Alan Henceroth, A-Basin's Chief Operating Officer.
Since opening the season on October 13, 2013, Arapahoe Basin has received approximately 35 feet (419 inches) of snowfall through May 13, well surpassing the entire 2012-13 season total of 307 inches.
Currently, A-Basin is operating with an 80 inch base and over 80 percent open terrain.
Colorado ski resorts saw a banner year with lots of visitors and snow, but A-Basin is the only resort left open for the 2013-2014 year. (Dave Camara/Arapahoe Basin Ski Area)
