Vail Mountain extends its ski season by a week

Vail officials have extended the resort’s scheduled ski season closing date by one week to May 1.

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

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