FRISCO, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado resort plans to extend its ski and snowboard season through Memorial Day.

The Summit Daily News reports the Breckenridge Ski Resort announced last week that it will stay open until late May for first time since the mid-1990s.

The resort says it aims to extend future seasons as well, depending on weather and other conditions.

The extended seasons are subject to U.S. Forest Service approval.

The resort had originally planned to end the current season on April 21.

Parent company Vail Resorts also plans to extend the season at its sister property Keystone Resort.

Vail Resorts spokeswoman Sara Lococo says the Breckenridge Ski Resort does not plan to make snow during the extended portion of the season.

Breckenridge is about 80 miles (129 kilometers) west of Denver.
