Although the original plan was to stay open until May 6, Loveland Ski Area announced Tuesday it will close this Sunday.
According to a statement from the ski area, warm temperatures and lack of snow this season forced the the closure one week early. The ski area will still host its annual closing day party this Sunday featuring live music by Arnie J Green, drink specials and spring skiing and snowboarding.
"We would like to invite season pass holders from other ski areas to come and enjoy the last few days of our 2011-2012 season at a discounted rate," said spokesman Dustin Schaefer. "If your mountain has closed for the season but you still want to get a few spring days in, just show your season pass at the ticket window and you can purchase an (adult) lift ticket for just $30."
