Ski lovers rejoice- there is still plenty of time to visit Winter Park and take advantage of the last bits of ski season! As we recently reported, Winter Park was slammed with two feet of snow last weekend. As a result, now is the perfect time to plan a trip and make the most of the last-minute snowfall!
It has been decided that many of the ski and ride slopes will stay open for visitors to enjoy following a snowstorm that has hit the area and in anticipation of greater snow fall in the weeks to come. By the end of March, it is predicted that several feet of fresh snow will have fallen on the area, creating an ideal environment for spring skiing.
OpenSnow's snow report shows that Winter Park has already seen over four feet of snowfall this March, with another 22 inches expected over the next 10 days. That's an AMAZING amount of snow! There's no telling what good news early April will bring, but Colorado's resorts are expecting that all of the fresh powder will sustain the slopes until mid-April.
For 2021, Winter Park plans to close on April 25. The ability to extend the ski season into April is exciting for resorts, which have suffered from the reduction in tourism this season, and is a gift to skiers who have stood by safety protocols and supported resorts through the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you previously missed your chance to visit Winter Park and ski, then this is your sign to come visit now! Don't miss the chance to ski before the slopes close for the season!
