Though it may seem like summer to most, in the mountains of Colorado it’s still winter. Two prominent Colorado resorts have extended their ski seasons well into June, reports Colorado Public Radio.

About 120 acres of terrain will be opened to skiers and snowboarders this weekend at Aspen Mountain. Aspen also offered bonus skiing on Memorial Day weekend.

Meanwhile, Arapahoe Basin says it will also re-open its lift June 10 through June 12. After this weekend, Arapahoe will close for the season. A-Basin says it has been able to maintain snow due to the temperatures and timing of the snowfall this spring.
