Vail Mountain will reopen this weekend

VAIL, Colorado - Vail Mountain said today it will extend its season for one more weekend, reopening Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The mountain has received 2 feet of snow since its official closing day last Sunday.

"This is a great way to end our 50th anniversary season," said Chris Jarnot, senior vice president and COO at Vail Mountain. "This is an opportunity for our season pass holders and skiers from around the region to take advantage of a few extra days, and enjoy more of the spring skiing we all love here in Colorado."

Breckenridge will also reopen for the weekend. Breck has received over 5 feet of snow so far in April, including another 16 inches since the official closing on Sunday.

"After skiing some amazing powder turns on Closing Day and more heavy snow in the forecast this week, we just don't have the heart to shut down Breck's lifts just yet," said Pat Campbell, senior vice president and COO at Breckenridge Ski Resort. "We can't deny how great the conditions are, so this is a great opportunity for all of our guests to take advantage of a few extra days and enjoy more of the spring skiing and riding we all love here in Breck."

Skiing this weekend will be free for 2012-13 Vail Resorts season pass holders.
