Ski season extended

Aspen Highlands’ season has been extended for a week. Instead of closing Sunday the mountain will close April 8. Highland Bowl has a base of more than 6 feet, said Aspen Skiing Co. officials.

All related mountain facilities and services will continue to operate, and parking at Aspen Highlands is free April 2-6.

Reached on the Loge Peak chair today, senior vice president - mountain division David Perry said, “The rumors of the death of winter have been greatly exaggerated. There are six inches of new snow on the ground today, six feet in the bowl and more snow on the way this week. Don’t break out the bikes and golf clubs just yet.”

Buttermilk will close Sunday, with a Family Fun Day starting at 10 a.m. There will be an on Mountain Duck Hunt (Scavenger Hunt). Find the rubber duckies and take them to the Buttermilk ticket office to redeem for prizes. Snowmass and Aspen Mountain will close April 15.
