As mentioned above, you’ll be able to ski Snowbird into late spring. There are a few other resorts that will try to stay open as long as they can:

MT. BACHELOR, ORE. closing May 27, 2018

Springtime at the area just outside of Bend, Ore., can run anywhere from winter pow to corn to spring slush bumps. End early so there’s less chance for a twisted knee and plenty of time for a few of Oregon’s mouthwatering craft brews. If you had a mind for a multi-sport day, head over to Smith Rocks State Park for rock climbing or whitewater kayaking on the Deschutes River. 

MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, CA  closing May 28. 2018

Top to bottom skiing, apres music in the Village and hot springs at sunset. This place still lures Los Angelenos on the weekends. 

Whistler/Blackcomb B.C. closing May 21, 2018

Whistler has glacier skiing year round. So even though they will close in May, the party continues when they reopen in June and July for skiing up high and world-class mountain biking below. 

Arapahoe Basin, CO closing June 3, 2018

Skiing spring slush is just an excuse to partake in the biggest parking lot tailgate party in the ski industry; costumes, beer bongs, grilled meat, loud music and partial nudity. what more do you need?

Squaw Valley, CA closing May 31, 2018

Water ski at sunrise and sunset; snow ski in between. There’s also golf, mountain biking, rock climbing and river rafting on top of the ranging apres ski deck scene.
