Slopes May Be Closed, But Resorts No Longer Just For Winter

SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – At least seven Colorado ski resorts ended their seasons on Sunday and CBS4’s Matt Kroschel found plenty of people enjoying their last few runs at Copper Mountain.

It was closing day for the season at Copper, Keystone, Beaver Creek and Steamboat. But as the busy season wraps up, the real work is just getting started.

As the music fades on closing day construction crews will take over.

“Big capital projects; so exciting were able to make that experience better,” Steph Sweeney with Copper Mountain Resort said.

New summer recreation and lift updates are planned.

“The resorts are no longer just for winter,” Sweeney said.
