FRISCO, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado ski area has announced the extension of its skiing and riding season by at least one weekend.

Summit Daily reports that Arapahoe Basin Ski Area announced Tuesday it will close its 7-day a week operations effective June 2, the date originally planned for closing.

The ski area 64 miles (103 kilometers) west of Denver says it will then re-open for at least one more weekend June 7-9.

An official says the resort in the White River National Forest may open for additional weekends, conditions permitting, but there is currently no timeframe to make those announcements.

The official says 82% of Arapahoe Basin’s terrain was open Tuesday.

Breckenridge Ski Resort, located 20 miles (32 kilometers) southwest of Arapahoe, plans to stay open through the Memorial Day holiday May 27.
