Colorado skiers don't have to pack away their gear yet -- Arapahoe Basin announced it will extend the ski season.

Summit Daily News reports that after nearly 50 inches of snow in May there will be limited lift service during a bonus weekend of June 12 to June 14. Officials say they could add more bonus weekends if the weather stays cool and cloudy.
