The atmospheric river that's been pummeling the West during the 2016-2017 ski season has delivered big on bottomless base depths, and many of our Western ski resorts were able to push back their closing dates. Whether you’re still seeking to check off a destination resort or you’re simply looking to claim a few more days at your local mountain, the deep snowpack has allowed these eight resorts to keep their lifts spinning into May, June and July.
