Just 2 Colorado ski areas still open after Sunday

DENVER (AP) - Some Colorado ski resorts got a boost this winter from decent snow and a better economy, but a few frigid days, good snow in other parts of the country, and spotty storms elsewhere in the state could keep it from being an epic season.

Aspen Highlands, Copper Mountain, Winter Park, Vail and Breckenridge are closing for the season Sunday after getting fresh snow this weekend.

Loveland plans to close May 8; Arapahoe Basin plans to close June 5. Everyone else has already shut down for the season.

The trade group Colorado Ski Country USA expects skier visits to be up this season, but it doesn't have final figures yet.

La Nina brought lots of snow to some Colorado resorts, but others say they didn't get as much as usual.
