Colorado Skiers enjoying
“winter that just won’t seem to end”

19 May 08 - It ain’t over until it’s over. That’s what diehard skiers are saying this year, milking every last drop of pleasure from a a winter that just won’t seem to end. A storm late last week dropped about eight inches of snow on Arapahoe Basin, and the skiing surface was refreshed yet again with another eight inches reported between May 11-13.

A-Basin skiers and boarders are reporting some of the best skiing of the season high on the East Wall, where winter-like snow lingers in the steepest notches and chutes. The relatively dense spring snow settles more quickly than mid-winter powder, and this is prime-time for the hike-to terrain.

A-Basin, the last ski area open in Colorado, is reporting a 59-inch base, with snow conditions transitioning from powder to spring. The snow surface can change hour to hour, depending on elevation, aspect and slope angle.
