Vail Resorts is hoping to make winter last a little longer.
To provide its pass holders and guests with even more time to enjoy the mountains they love, Vail Resorts today announced that it is extending the 2021/22 ski and ride season across seven of its resorts, weather and snow conditions permitting.
The extensions span resorts across the country including Stevens Pass in Washington State, Heavenly and Kirkwood in Lake Tahoe, Vail Mountain in Colorado, Boston Mills in Ohio, Hunter Mountain in New York, and Mount Snow in Vermont. Additionally, Breckenridge in Colorado and Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia will remain open through late May, as planned, conditions permitting.
“No one likes to see the ski and ride season come to an end, and thanks to our incredible employees who have worked so hard this season, we will be able to enjoy time on the snow a little longer this year,” said James O’Donnell, Vail Resorts’ mountain division president in a statement. “We are grateful to all of our pass holders and guests for their loyalty and passion, and we are pleased to be able to offer them a few more opportunities to ski and ride this winter season.”
Planned Season Extensions
- Vail Mountain: Open until May 1 (previously April 24)
- Kirkwood: Open until May 1 (previously April 10)
- Heavenly: Open until April 24 (previously April 17)
- Stevens Pass: Open until May 1 (previously April 17)
- Hunter: Open until April 10 (previously April 3)
- Mount Snow: Carinthia open until April 24 (previously April 17)

In addition to these season extensions, Vail Resorts says that it will offer skiing and riding well into May at Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia (scheduled to stay open until May 23) and Breckenridge in Colorado (scheduled to stay open through Memorial Day, May 30).
While pass holders and all guests will have more time on the mountains, Vail Resorts says that skiers and riders should be aware that due to late spring conditions, open terrain may be reduced.
