Beaver Creek closes Sunday with some of the best ski conditions of the year — 1,200 skiable acres and a 60-plus inch settle base — and Vail will stay open one more week after extending the season until Sunday, April 17.
Vail will offer skiers and snowboarders access to the majority of the Front Side of the mountain next week, as well as both Sun Up and Sun Down in the Back Bowls. In all, Vail will have more than 2,500 acres of skiable terrain during closing week.
Beaver Creek could serve up some fresh snow on closing day, according to forecasters, and Vail may see an even colder and stronger storm the following weekend.
“Mixed periods of sun, clouds, and increased shower activity in the afternoon will be the forecast through early next week,” Opensnow.com meteorologist Sam Collentine wrote Saturday. “We will see a quick shot at accumulations on Sunday night and into early Monday morning for areas east of the divide, though totals look generally light.
?Mostly dry conditions will then prevail during the middle of next week. Colder and stronger storm takes aim for Colorado over the following weekend, April 15th-17th.”
Spring Back to Vail is in full swing until April 10.
