Vail Mountain is extending is ski season by one week

Officials in Vail have extended the scheduled closing date of the resort’s ski season a week to May 1.

“This extension is made entirely possible by the dedicated mountain staff who have worked to provide guests with an outstanding winter season,” said Beth Howard, vice president and chief operating officer of Vail Mountain, in a news release. “We are truly grateful for everyone’s hard work to open over 5,100 acres of terrain and for our longest season on record.”

The news comes as other Colorado resorts are reconsidering their projected closing dates because of good snowfall since the Christmas holidays. More extensions are expected this week, but here is a list of closing dates as schedules exist now.
