Colorado Ski Area Closing Dates for 2024




Signs of spring are already starting to sprout along the Front Range, from bright purple crocuses to the return of the ospreys at the Boulder County Fairgrounds.


And, while there’s still plenty of snow in the mountains for now, it’s time to map out your plans for the rest of ski season. It’s time to start making the most of our beautiful spring skiing conditions and plan some last-minute getaways to the mountains before it’s too late.


Trying to squeeze in as many ski days as possible until next winter? Use these Colorado ski area closing dates to help you prioritize.

March 31


With another successful season on the books, Buttermilk will be closing on March 31, aka Bacon Appreciation Day. Eat your fill of salty, meaty goodness—including bacon doughnuts—then jam out to a DJ set and watch a pop-up rail jam.

April 7

Crested Butte


Time for one last big road trip to the Western Slope: Crested Butte Mountain Resort will be closing April 7.  The ski area will be hosting a pond skim and the final show of its Ski Town Breakdown series on April 6. And, for all you Grateful Dead fans out there, on April 4, the Center for the Arts Crested Butte will be hosting Deadhead Ed’s End of Season Party.

Send off the season in style by attending the Keystone Springtastic Closing Weekend and Pond Skim on April 6-7. There’s also a Rail Jam, beer samplings, vendor booths and a special pond for kids.


Other ski areas closing on April 7 include:

  • Wolf Creek
  • Telluride
  • Aspen Highlands
  • Cooper
  • Powderhorn

April 14


You still have a few weeks to get in some quick turns at Eldora. Boulder County’s beloved ski area will be closing on April 14.



On April 13, Snowmass will be hosting its Elk Camp Surf & Snow Beach party featuring free leis, hot tubs, margarita blender bikes, a pond skim, a dance party and more. Even if you don’t ski, you can still participate, because gondola food passes are free after noon.


Other ski areas closing on April 14 include:

  • Beaver Creek
  • Monarch
  • Silverton
  • Echo Mountain

April 21


Vail will be hosting its End of Season Bash at the Golden Peak Base Area on April 19. This fun event includes the Vail Social Ski Race, food, drinks, dancing and live music by Cas Haley.



Steamboat had planned to close on April 14 but, because of all the good snow it got this season, it decided to extend to April 21. No pass? No problem. You can buy an April Unlimited Pass for just $499 so you can ski and ride from April 1-21.

The resort still plans to host its Pond Skim, Carboard Classic and Bud Light Rocks the Boat free concerts on April 13-14 so, if you’re looking for a party-like atmosphere, consider heading up that weekend instead.



Enjoy one last al fresco beer on the patio of the Sundeck as Ajax closes on April 21.

April 28

Copper Mountain


Closing weekend at Copper is always a vibe—and this year will be no different. Celebrate by attending Sunsation, an end-of-season musical festival featuring Brass Attack, Ripe, Beau Thomas Band and The Main Squeeze. You also don’t want to miss Slush Rush, a whimsical relay race that involves a superpipe slalom, a cross course and rails and a pond skim on either skis, snowboards or snowblades.

May 12



Loveland is just a hop, skip and a jump from Boulder—so you can easily make it there for the closing day party, which includes an outdoor barbecue, drink specials and live music from the Coral Creek String Band on the patio.

As Long As There’s Snow

It’s too early to tell how much snow the mountains will see this spring. As such, Breckenridge, Winter Park and Arapahoe Basin say they will remain open for as long as possible.
