Aspen Skiing Co. on Thursday announced two bonus weekends of skiing at Aspen Highlands.

The bonus days will take place on Apr. 19 - 21 and Apr. 26 - 28 and according to a press release, nearly 100 percent of terrain will be open including the Highland Bowl. Skiing and riding will be accessed via Exhibition, Cloud Nine, Loge and Temerity lifts.

“The 2018-19 winter season has been one for the record books,” Katie Ertl, senior vice president of mountain operations, said in the release. “With the Highland Bowl reporting 102 inches of new snow in the month of March so far, the conditions will be outstanding well into spring. Extending operations at Highlands will be the cherry on top of this incredible season.”

Aspen Highlands opened a week early this season, which was the first early opening of Highlands since the ‘90s. The mountain was originally scheduled to close April 14, with a celebration for the end of the season.

According to the release, all season passes are valid for the extra two weekends, and lift tickets for Highlands' last weekend are priced as follows: Single day tickets are $79 a day for adults and $54 for children, teens and seniors. Two and three-day lift tickets are $69 per day for adults. Sightseeing will be offered at $26 for adults and $15 for children, teens and seniors. Extension days for Adult Flex, Double Flex, Classic, Mountain Collective and Ikon passholders will be $39.  Extension days for child, teen, college and senior Classic, Mountain Collective and Ikon passholders will be $27. Lift tickets for guests presenting passes from other resorts will be $49/day.

Food and beverage options will be available at Merry-Go-Round restaurant and Cloud Nine Bistro, and operations, parking and shuttles will remain consistent with regular season operations.

SkiCo’s other three mountains will close on their original scheduled dates: April 7 for Buttermilk and April 21 for Aspen and Snowmass.
