If getting to ski any new snow beyond the confines of a typical ski season is a bonus, then the end of 2018/2019 is delivering quite the payout to skiers and riders with more than a few inches (read: double digit snow totals in the last week) of legitimate powder. Approaching June, we keep hearing about the #aMAYzing conditions for ski resorts still open in California, Utah and Colorado.

And with all the snowfall so far this month, some mountains, such as A-Basin and Breck, are extending closing dates while others, like Aspen and Purgatory, will reopen for Memorial weekend skiing (queue up for first tracks). Look to the usual late closers—Snowbird, Mammoth and Squaw, all of which are holding strong with base depths in excess of 100"—to keep pushing closing dates and possibly even records this season. 

Ski Season Projected Closing Dates

To all you dedicated skiers and riders still getting after it this month, we salute you! Check out the scene from some of the ski resorts with the most snow reported this month (with incoming/ongoing storms and about a week still to go in May), and enjoy the late-season turns through mid-winter conditions. For anyone who's missing the sunny, spring corn characteristic of this time of year, fret not... that's what summer skiing is for.
