Additionally, Breckenridge in Colorado and Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia will remain open through late May, as planned, conditions permitting. 

“No one likes to see the ski and ride season come to an end, and thanks to our incredible employees who have worked so hard this season, we will be able to enjoy time on the snow a little longer this year,” said James O’Donnell, Vail Resorts’ mountain division president. “We are grateful to all of our pass holders and guests for their loyalty and passion, and we are pleased to be able to offer them a few more opportunities to ski and ride this winter season.”
