And then there were 12...
Above, a shot from the parking lot at Arapahoe Basin, which is apparently in full spring beach mode.
If you still want to ski this season, better not hang out in the hot tub too long. Yesterday was the last day of operation for several ski areas in the state, but 12 are still open and if you don't mind spring conditions, there is a ton of snow. After next weekend, all but a few diehard hills will shut down the lifts.
Then only Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Silverton and Echo Mountain Park will be open. They plan to keep things going as long as they can - maybe May, maybe June. On rare years, A Basin keeps rolling all the way to July.
