This Colorado Ski Resort’s Season Now Runs Well Into June
Yet another Colorado ski resort has extended their season. In this case, lifts will be open into the second week of June.
I posted yesterday about Purgatory Resort near Durango extending their season into the Memorial Day weekend. Another Colorado resort has taken it a notch further.
Via their official webpage, Breckenridge Ski Resort shared the following:
We are extending the 2018-19 ski and snowboard season for two additional weekends beyond Memorial Day. The resort will remain open daily through Memorial Day, May 27 as planned, and then will shift to a weekend schedule, offering skiing and riding on Saturdays and Sundays June 1-2 and June 8-9, weather and conditions permitting.
Staying open through the first weekend of June is not unheard of, but this is extraordinary.
As I said in another post, I'm certain it was two weeks ago I received a nasty sunburn while attempting to conquer the jungle of weeds overtaking my back yard. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure I've been pulling weeds for a good six weeks or so. My yard and the back of my neck were both pretty sure summer was well on its way.
During the two additional weekends at Breckenridge, operations will continue to be based out of Peak 7, with access to primarily advanced and expert-level terrain, via the Independence SuperChair. Well, that pretty much leaves me out. I use the kiddie slope. As a matter of fact, a January trip to Powderhorn earlier this year was the first time I've skied in decades.
It has been one of the best winter seasons I can remember during my more than 25-year career, and we are thrilled to keep it going for our guests and passholders." - John Buhler, vice president and chief operating officer at Breckenridge Ski Resort.
Breckenridge Ski Resort will remain open daily through Memorial Day, May 27, as originally planned, and then will shift to a weekend schedule, offering skiing and riding Friday through Sunday, May 31 through June 2, and June 7 through 9. This is, of course, with weather and conditions permitting.
