Aspen Highlands will reopen April 27 and 28 for continued spring skiing after recent storms dumped more than three feet of snow in the area this past week. The mountain was set to shut down operations April 21, but officials decided to keep it open in appreciation skiers and riders “for a great season.”

“We are skiers and snowboarders and it is snowing like crazy, so of course we will reopen,” said David Perry, Senior Vice President, Aspen Skiing Company. “This is a big thank you to everyone. Let’s finish the season with smiles on our faces.”

Aspen Highlands is one of Aspen/Snowmass’ four mountains. Aspen and Snowmass mountains both ended the season April 14, and Buttermilk Mountain closed April 7. Aspen Highlands closing is a notorious party in the ski resort world, bringing thousands to the base for one last hurrah.

All Aspen/Snowmass season passes are valid as they are during the regular season. As of today and through April 28, adult tickets are $62 per day, $57 for youth and senior tickets and $42 for children. As always children six and under ski for free. Additional days for Classic passholders from April 15-21 and April 27-28 are $35 for adults and $20 for Children, Youth and College. Double Flex and Flex passholders can also add a day for $35 from April 15-21 and April 27-28.
