Aspen Skiing Co. announced that due to the high snowfall totals so far this season, combined with superb conditions, they will be extending the 2018-19 season at Aspen Highlands, CO.

They announced Thursday that Aspen Highlands, which was originally scheduled to close April 14th, will open for two extra weekends, April 19 to 21 and April 26 to 28.

“The 2018-19 winter season has been one for the record books,” said Katie Ertl, senior vice president of mountain operations, in a statement. “With the Highland Bowl reporting 102 inches of new snow in the month of March … extending operations at Highlands will be the cherry on top of this incredible season.”

According to the resort, the plan is to have almost all terrain open on Highlands for the bonus weekends, including Highland Bowl. On-mountain restaurants Merry-Go-Round and Cloud Nine also will remain open for the extra weekends.

Lift tickets for April 26 to 28 will be $79 a day for adults and $54 for children, teenagers, and seniors. Skico will charge the regular lift ticket price for April 19 to 21.

Regular season passes are still valid for all extended weekends and extension days for Adult Flex, Double Flex, Classic, Mountain Collective, and Ikon pass holders will be $39 and $27 for children, teen, college and senior pass holders.

Aspen Snowmass is just 1 of 38 iconic destinations available on the new Ikon Pass.
