Spring Skiing This Weekend In California, Colorado and New England

SwuawSpring may be taking hold where you live, but numerous resorts will continue to spin the lift this weekend … and well into May.

Colorado’s Wolf Creek and Aspen Highlands will operate for the final weekend of the season Saturday and Sunday, thanks in large part to numerous spring storms that have dropped significant snow throughout the Colorado Rockies. In fact, the Central Rockies may see upwards of two feet of snow this weekend, and the Denver area may even see up to a foot of snow this weekend too! Ahh … springtime in the Rockies.

The Legend, Arapahoe Basin is still 100 percent open and plans to stay that way as long as conditions permit - maybe into June! Just on the other side of Loveland Pass, Loveland Ski Area is open till May 8. Winter Park Resort is also open this weekend, and Utah’s Snowbird plans to stay open well into May.

In California, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Mount Rose and Mammoth Mountain will all be open this weekend and beyond.


Five resorts open in the Northeast this weekend!

Jay Peak Resort, which has been dogged by SEC violations regarding the handling of the EB-5 foreign investor program, gets back to skiing and riding this weekend, opening the Jet triple chair serving a couple runs.

Heading south down Route 100, Sugarbush Resort will spin the Valley House Quad, serving four trails, and host a Ski and Tee Party - ski in the morning, golf in the afternoon!

Even further down on Route 100, the Beast of the East - Killington Resort - continues the spring tradition with the Superstar Express operating Friday, Saturday and Sunday as long as the snow holds out. With more than 20 feet of snow on Superstar, the Beast may operate deep into May.

Maine’s Sunday River and Sugarloaf mountains are open this weekend. Sunday River will turn the Barker Mountain Express, serving a few trails and offering $39 lift tickets. Sugarloaf, meanwhile, hosts one last hurrah this weekend with the SuperQuad open, along with the Beach Bar & Grill and $39 lift tickets.

Canada's Whistler Backcomb and Lake Louise feature the most open terrain you'll find anywhere in North America this weekend.
