Due to an abundance of March snow, Mary Jane will remain open 13 extra days

 

WINTER PARK – Thanks to a massive powder week that has seen Winter Park Resort pick up 42” of fresh snow since Monday, the most in Colorado over that span, iconic Mary Jane will remain open an extra 13 days, with closing now slated for Saturday, May 7. Lifts and trails on the Winter Park side will still close on the originally scheduled closing day of Sunday, April 24.

Thanks to another 12.5” of snow overnight, Winter Park has racked up 61.5” (over five feet) in the month of March alone and has a base of 90”, enabling the extension. All that snow adds up to 13 extra days of Mary Jane’s world-famous moguls, tree-skiing, and C-Lot parties, a fitting continuation of what has been a stellar 40th anniversary for Colorado’s favorite lady. Exact available lifts and terrain will be released closer to the extension. This will be the latest Mary Jane has stayed open since 1998, when she stayed open until May 25.

Lodging will still be available at Winter Park Resort properties, including Fraser Crossing/Founder’s Pointe, Zephyr Mountain Lodge, and the Vintage Hotel and select Winter Park shopping/restaurants will be open, but the center of the celebration will be the Mary Jane base, with music and entertainment scheduled throughout the fortnight. Shuttle buses will be available for transportation from the Winter Park side or visitors can take advantage of closer, free parking at the Mary Jane base area.
