Mammoth Mountain Spring Skiing

Let’s be honest, up until the last week or so, this winter has been borderline disappointing. Across the Mountain West, ski areas saw early fall storms with significant snow totals but then Ullr decided to turn off the faucet for what felt like most of the winter months. Occasional storms here and there kept lifts spinning, but not even in the Great White North was the skiing either that great, or white, all season.

In a fortuitous turn of events, Old Man Winter decided to make his long-awaited return before every ski area hung up their B-netting. With gargantuan spring storm totals reaching multiple feet of mid-winter pow in a matter of days in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountains, ski areas from California to Vermont are reaping these late-season snow benefits.

The end of ski season is always inevitable but if you’re like us, you’ll do anything to extend it as long as possible. Namely, packing up the car and road tripping to nearby ski areas that are still welcoming skiers and riders. To make this harrowing endeavor just a bit easier for you—we can’t make gas any cheaper, sorry—we’ve compiled a list of 10 ski areas across the United States that are operating well into May and even June. Pack your boots and your buds, the 2022 ski season is far from over!

Note: These dates are subject to change based on snow and weather conditions.

Jay Peak — May 1, 2022

Winter Park — May 14, 2022

If you’ve ever skied Winter Park Resort, you know the best place to be is on the Mary Jane side of the mountain. Lucky for us, the ski area plans to keep the Mary Jane side of the resort open for as long the snow will allow. Get there before it’s gone!

Timberline Lodge — May 30, 2022 (winter/spring season pass), Labor Day (summer season pass)

Arapahoe Basin — Mid-June

Home of the highest terrain in North America, Arapahoe Basin uses its high elevation to extend the ski season longer than any other ski area in Colorado. Generally operating from October through mid-June, late spring turns are a dime a dozen in these parts. 

Beartooth Basin — June

Situated on top of Beartooth Pass in Montana, this single-poma ski area doesn’t even open until most ski areas in the U.S. are closed for the season. The official opening day of the 2022 summer ski season is May 27, with operations usually going through the month of June.
