Closing Dates for Summit County Resorts

by The Mountain Living Team

The days are getting longer and the temperatures getting warmer.  We are enjoying spring skiing here!  This time of year always lets us know that the snow won't last much longer.  Most resorts close around mid-April with Loveland and Arapahoe Basin staying open longer.  Here are the closing dates for our local resorts.  Remember these dates are subject to change based on snow conditions.

Breckenridge - April 22
Copper Mountain - April 15
Keystone - April 8
Arapahoe Basin - No date set yet.

Nearby Resorts:
Beaver Creek - April 15
Vail - April 15
Loveland - May 9

Time is short.  Get out there and enjoy the rest of this ski season!

Last weekend’s storm and colder temperatures have helped Arapahoe Basin open for the season today.  With one run open and an 18″ base it may be hard to ski all day long but it is an opportunity to get your ski legs back.  Ski season has begun! I have new skis this year and am anxious to try them.  I’m not hitting the slopes today, and probably not any time soon, but this news is exciting to me because we are that much closer to having great snow at the resorts.  I expect Loveland to open any day now, Copper and Keystone will be following with opening day November 1st.  Breckenridge opens the following week.  Every ski area in Summit County will be open in just a few short weeks.  Snow is in the forecast for the next few days and the following is from the Farmer’s Almanac’s general winter prediction:

“This winter is shaping up to be a rough one,” says Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. “Sweaters and snow shovels should be unpacked early and kept close by throughout the season. The good news is that the extra precipitation—which will fall as rain or snow depending where you are—will help with any drought issues left over from the summer.”

I’m hoping the ski season A-Basin is kicking off today is another fantastic ski season in Summit County and all the ski areas nearby.

 

Over the Hill Gang and season pass info; ski season starts soon!

by Joanne Hanson

One of my favorite groups in Summit County is the Over the Hill Gang.  You don’t even have to be over the hill to join them, as they accept members as young as 45.   They ski at Copper Mountain four days a week with a ski school guide.  That fact that OHG members are with guides becomes very important during the busy seasons, as it means that they get to cut ski school lines.   Plus, the guides know all the best places to ski and give great ski tips.   Low cost workshops are offered many times during year, and The Gang has lots of social activities, both summer and winter. 

Joining OHG is easy to do and is best done online.  Membership is $270 per person for the season up to age 79.  Once you turn 80, the only cost is a $10 administrative fee!  Are you laughing, wondering who will qualify?  Join, and find out!  There are many very fit, athletic people who still ski frequently at 80 and above.  They may not be bashing bumps all day, but they still put in a day that would wear many younger people out.  The early season discount ends October 18, so sign up quickly if you intend to do it this season.  There  is also a couples discount and discounted season passes.  When you buy the membership and season pass together, the pass is $339 for Copper only (regular early season price is $359), and $379 for the Rocky Mountain Super Pass.  Other pass prices are also listed on the website. 

Copper Mountain opens November 14, so you have less than two months to get in shape for ski season. Time to get busy! 

Oh, and don’t forget that Summmit County ski condo.  Of course, we can help with that.  :)
