ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Aspen Mountain’s extended ski season is over.

The resort had closed in mid-April, but with plenty of late spring snow, it reopened the top of the mountain for skiing over Memorial Day weekend and the following weekend.

Resort officials hoped to offer weekend skiing until July 4 if the snow was good enough, but Aspen Skiing Co. spokesman Jeff Hanle said Wednesday the season is finished.

He estimates about 5,000 skiers and snowboarders, including a couple of first-timers from Mexico, got in some turns during the five extra days of the season.

That leaves Arapahoe Basin as the last Colorado resort to close. It says it will be open for skiing Friday through Sunday for at least two more weekends.
