After great early-season snow, a powder-filled winter and big spring storms, some of Colorado's top ski areas want the excitement to continue.

Aspen Mountain, Copper Mountain and Winter Park Resort are among the resorts that announced season extensions this week to take advantage of the conditions, which have shaped a memorable 2013/2014 ski season.

"It's been a fantastic winter - the kind we love to see in Colorado," said Jennifer Rudolph, a spokeswoman for Colorado Ski Country USA, which represents 21 of the state's 25 ski areas.

Aspen Mountain, set to close on April 20, will reopen to skiers for two additional weekends - April 26-27 and May 3-4.

Copper Mountain also closes April 20 but will reopen for one additional weekend, April 25-27.

After 28 feet of snow through the year, Winter Park Resort will extend its season by one full week and will be open through April 27.

Sunlight Mountain Resort and Powderhorn Mountain Resort in Western Colorado also announced extensions through this weekend, Rudolph said.
