A-Basin closing curtain on 2012-13 ski season

Arapahoe Basin, still sporting a 31-inch base, will officially end the inbound Colorado ski season this weekend.

A-Basin is typically one of the first ski areas in the state to open each fall (usually in October) and one of the last to close in the late spring, early summer.

Its originally scheduled closing day was Sunday, June 2, but resort officials extended the season by one more weekend, closing last week but opening back up Friday to Sunday, June 7-9.

“This Sunday, June 9, will definitely be closing day,” President and COO Alan Henceroth wrote on his blog this week. “Joking and teasing aside, Sunday will be the last day. No more extensions. Come on out and join the fun.”

Despite recent warm temperatures, Henceroth says the mountain is holding up nicely.

“Friday we should be skiing Upper Wrangler, Sundance, High Noon, Upper Ramrod, Humbug, Lenawee Face, Powerline, Norway, and a little bit more,” Henceroth wrote. “I look forward to some really fun summer skiing, BBQ, and good music.”

For more information about A-Basin’s closing weekend, go to their website.

Forecasters are calling for a chance of afternoon storms on Friday but a generally hot and dry weekend after that.
