Aspen Mountain will open about 120 acres of terrain to skiers and snowboarders this weekend, after also offering bonus skiing on Memorial Day weekend.

Arapahoe Basin says it will re-open its lift June 10 through June 12, when it's set to close for the season. A-Basin says the temperatures and timing of the snowfall this spring has helped it maintain its snow.
