Spring skiing and snowboarding is alive and well in Colorado, thanks to new snow this week and heavier-than-usual totals since January 1, and several ski areas have already announced extended seasons to make the most of it. Aspen Mountain, originally scheduled to close on April 20, announced on Thursday that it will re-open for the weekends of April 26-27 and May 3-4. "We figured since we opened early we might as well stay open late," writes Rich Burkley, vice president of mountain operations for Aspen Skiing Company. "Conditions are just too good not to go skiing." Copper Mountain, also slated to close out its season on April 20, will re-open April 25-27. And Breckenridge has so much snow that it's staying open a full extra week, through April 27. With new snow at every ski area in Colorado, we've compiled a list of this weekend's best events for making the most of it.
