Spring has sprung, and some of you might be mothballing your snow equipment, but then there are the die-hard fans of all things snow who will not quit until the last resort is closed for the season.

We had a look for our readers where in North America you can still get your turns in (and for how long). While this list is not comprehensive, we have focused on the resorts with an excellent reputation for spring skiing or those with a bumper 22/23 season and have recently announced season extensions.


Whistler, BC
Whistler has always been known for fantastic spring skiing and will stay open until late May or June most years. It announced in August last year its intention to remain open until May 22, 2023.

Lake Louise, AB
Lake Louise has a tentative closing date of May 9, 2023. The resort has seen 438 cm of snow (or 172 inches) this season.


Arapahoe Basin, CO
Arapahoe Basin typically has the longest season in Colorado. The resort is expected to stay open until early June but has not confirmed a closing date yet.

Copper Moutain, CO
Copper Mountain has extended its season to at least May 7, 2023, making it its longest season in 25 years. The Colorado resort still has a snow depth of currently 79 inches.

Mammoth, CA
Mammoth announced that they will be open until at least July 2023. Mammoth has a long-standing history of being open until summer.

Palisades Tahoe, CA
Palisades and Alpine will be open on select days through May 29, 2023. In June, Alpine will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for skiing and snowboarding until and including the July 4 weekend.

Heavenly Ski Resort, CA
Heavenly extended its season until May 9, 2023, after receiving 566 inches so far this season. The resort was originally going to close on April 16, 2023.

Big Bear Mountain Resort, CA
Big Bear Mountain Resort has received 210 inches of snow this season — a 20-year record. The resort has extended its season to at least April 30, 2023, and all 58 runs remain open.

Park City Mountain, UT
Park City has extended its season until April 23, 2023. After 600 inches of snowfall, the ski resort extended the season, making this the longest season on the mountain since 1993.

Snowbird, UT
Snowbird always stays open late, and this Utah resort is estimated to be open until at least Memorial Day weekend. The resort has been open as late as mid-June in past bumper seasons, so this will be one of the longest to stay open. With a record snowfall of 805 inches this season, it could be a record-long season for Snowbird.

Timberline Lodge, OR
Timberline is considered America’s truest summer skiing resort. The season here goes into July each year, some years even into August. Timberline has a base cover of 188 inches at the moment.

Mt Bachelor, OR
Mt Bachelor is slated to stay open until May 28, 2023. The resort has seen 438 inches of snowfall this season and has a base depth of 139 inches.

Killington, VT
The Beast of the East is famous for the Longest Season in the east, and this year is no exception. The east coast might not have got the attention-grabbing snowfall the west did, but Killington will be open as long as conditions allow. On April 22nd, it will extend its hours to 5 pm. The annual May Day slalom will take place on May 1st, following which the resort will operate weekends only with a tentative closing date of May 15th. Killington has seen 194″ of fresh snow this season and has a 26″ base.

Remember that conditions may vary. Please confirm each resort’s status and infrastructure availability before visiting or booking, as availability may vary for the remainder of the season and are subject to change.
