That didn't last long ...
On Thursday, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area announced that the mountain will officially close for the season due to lack of snow, less than two weeks after reopening on May 27. A-Basin will close for the season on Sunday, June 7.
Chief Operating Officer Alan Henceroth said, "Every season, no matter how hard we try and stop it, the snow still melts. We think Sunday is a good day to close out the season. The snow is almost gone."
Last year, the ski area was able to remain open until the Fourth of July. Spokeswoman Katherine Fuller told The Summit Daily that it "fluctuates" and is "not uncommon."
"It’s usually in mid- to late June. June 7 was always the date we were planning for, but considering we made it to July Fourth last year, this feels super early," Fuller said.
