As winter winds down the ski resorts in Summit County will soon be stopping their lifts and closing for the season. Be sure to make the most of the last few days and end of season events at your favorite local mountains!
Keystone Resort’s closing day is quickly approaching, bringing the mountain’s annual Slush Cup event along with it! Sunday, April 8th will be the last day of the 2017/18 winter season at Keystone, and people of all ages will be there to soak up some sunshine, hit the slopes, and put their pond-skimming skills in action. Registration for the pond skim will be 8 to 10 am and the event will begin at 1 pm. Participants can also show off their creativity in the costume contest. If pond-skimming isn’t your thing, feel free to come by anyway to watch and cheer on the participants! This local Summit County event is fun for all ages and is open to anyone who’s ready to make a splash; click here to register.
Copper Mountain will be the next to close its slopes; their last day of the season will be Sunday April 15th. The mountain will be ending the season in celebration, with several exciting events and live music. On Saturday, April 14th, Copper will be holding its annual Red bull SlopeSoakers pond skim, featuring floating rails. On Sunday you can ski for a good cause at the Retro Shred-a-Thon to raise money for the High Fives Foundation. End the day with live music at 3-4:30 on both Saturday and Sunday!

Adding another pond skim to the list, Breckenridge will be ending their season on Sunday, April 22nd with the Breck Plunge!

Registration is not yet posted but will be available on the website soon.
Have no fear! The season’s not completely over. Although most of the resorts are closing, A-basin’s lifts will still be running for quite a while. The mountain’s closing date is still undetermined but is estimated to be at the start of June.
Happy spring skiing!
