Two Colorado ski resorts, Winter Park and Copper Mountain, each announced on Wednesday additional days for the 2013-14 ski season. Originally scheduled to close on April 20, Winter Park plans to stay open throughout an extra full week to April 27. Copper Mountain Resort plans to reopen for one additional weekend, April 25-27, after its original closing date of April 20.

Although Winter Park has changed its closing date, the resort will still hold its season-ending Springtopia celebration on the weekend of April 19-20. The event will feature a free concert by Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Copper Mountain's Sunsation events will also remain as scheduled during the weekends of April 12-13 and April 19-20.

Reporting a base of 84 inches on Wednesday morning, Winter Park had recorded 340 inches of snow for the season with additional accumulations in the forecast. Depending on April snowfall, the resort could feasibly have its best season of the past ten years by beating the mark of 389 inches set in the 2007-08 season.

On Wednesday afternoon, Copper Mountain reported a season total snowfall of 322 inches. The resort listed a base of 81 inches at mid-mountain and 103 inches at the summit.
