BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — April 4, 2017 — Skiing and snowboarding isn’t over yet in Breckenridge, Colorado where more than two feet of new snow has fallen this week and it’s still snowing. Nearly a foot of snow has fallen since last night, and local forecasters are calling for additional snow storms through April.
 
“Our full attention quickly turns to Saturday through next Monday, April 10 for the snow machine to ramp back up in Colorado,” notes Open Snow’s Sam Collentine. “Looking further ahead, all longer-range models signal the opportunity for additional storms through the end of April. BRING. IT. ON.” Breckenridge is ready for April snow showers to finish out the season with great conditions.
 
This is great news for spring skiing enthusiasts and Breck Spring Fever goers. Four signature events will round out this year’s festival, starting Friday with the first of three Spring Fever Park Jams, the Breckenridge Spring Beer Festival, followed by Easter events and finally Breck’s NEW Breck Plunge pond skim event will help finish-off the season with a splash on Sunday, April 23, closing day.
