Why now is the best time to visit Colorado's top ski resorts

By JESS MOSS


There's still time to hit the slopes at Colorado's top ski resorts, and depending where you go, you might be able to snag some good deals.

This month's snowfall hasn't been as high as in past years (March is typically Colorado's snowiest month) but there's good news: April is historically the second snowiest month. Most of the top ski resorts in the state stay open through early or mid-April. Then there are resorts like Arapahoe Basin, where the season runs until early June. In short, there's still plenty of good skiing available.

Some of Colorado's ski resorts are offering good end-of-season deals -- Aspen will give skiers an extra day of free lift tickets and equipment rentals from April 6-19, and Steamboat is selling the discounted Springalicious Pass from April 5-12. Crested Butte, Telluride, and Winter Park all have lodging or lift deals as well.

It's also not too early to start planning a ski vacation for next year. Many of the top Colorado ski resorts are already selling passes and packages for the 2015-2016 season.
