COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colorado – Copper Mountain announced its second winter season extension in a row today, bringing the Colorado ski resort’s closing date from late April to likely at some point in May. According to a press release from the mountain, skiing and snowboarding will be available until the conditions no longer allow it.

Thanks to our high elevation, excellent snowpack and expert staff, we have an opportunity to keep the ski season going. Copper’s distinct advantages enable us to deliver an exceptional late-season experience, and we’re excited to offer skiing into May, for as long as conditions allow.” – Dustin Lyman, president and general manager of Copper Mountain

After April 28, Copper intends to continue running the American Eagle, Excelerator, Super Bee and Storm King lifts, while still offering the Superpipe and a hike-access park at the base and beginner terrain in Green Acres. Lift tickets cost just $99 from now through closing day, while Friends and Family passes sit at 40% off.

Despite the season extension, Copper will still hold its closing weekend celebration, Sunsation, on April 27 and 28. The festival will offer free live music throughout and the resort’s Slush Rush pond-skimming event on that Saturday (April 27).

More snow is expected in the mountains of Colorado throughout this week. At Copper, the incoming storm is predicted to bring up to 10 inches of snowfall, helping with the resort’s plan to stay open into May.
