I am planing a very late season trip to CO (finally got my performance bonus:D).
The only info about when the resorts will close is april 15th.(according is the lift ticket price section)
How likely is this to be accurate? this winter has been sad so far and it is getting warm fast.

With the warm temps I wonder if Breck will have more terrain open than they did on opening day?  Probably not...

It's been SUPER warm and there hasn't been any snow...

But I think there is some snow in the forecast this weekend?

Looks like maybe a dusting on Sunday. Monday has a shot of getting a decent amount.  The rest of the week, not so sure.  Hopefully we get back into a snow cycle at least through April.

+1 to that.  I'm heading out to Breckenridge in April, first trip to CO.  Hope the conditions are at last decent.

Where were you last year?  LOL

This season is definitely one of the worst I've seen since I've moved here in 1990.  In fact it is the worst I've seen.  All of the other bummer seasons I've experienced were nothing like this one. 

All that said, if we get into another cycle, it'll be great.  Either that or hope for sunshine and warm temps so you can harvest that corn.

^ *dripping sarcasm* Wonderful.... My first time to CO will be during the worst winter since '90.  

Last year during mid-Winter Break we had the family in Florida.  I couldn't help but think that the money we were blowing in Orlando could have been better spent on a mountain, although my kids enjoyed Disney World and we went to a Tigers spring training game.

Last season, was ridiculous.  We had consistent snow all they way up until almost the end of May.  I had nearly a two foot powder day on Berthoud Pass on May 20th.  There were a few more after that too.

This year, not really holding out that hope.

Again, there is enough coverage there, but it's melting fast.  If we get into a storm cycle again, you'll have no complaints what so ever.  It'll be just fine. 

A few pics from March 4th this season.  It was as tasty as it looks.






Again, if it snows, you'll be just fine.
