How is this possible? Two of Colorado Ski Country USA's 21 member ski areas and resorts have closed for the season, seven more are hosting closing day festivities this Sunday, and by this time next month you'll be able to count the number of open ski areas on one hand :(

The upside is that April is historically the second snowiest month in Colorado and there's a good chance that sun-drenched powder days are still ahead. So why not maximize spring skiing in Ski Country?

Here's a rundown of when Colorado Ski Country resorts are planning to close for the 2015/16 ski season. Keep in mind that these dates are tentative and subject to change.
