Ski Season REALLY Comes to an End

With the closing of Arapaho Basin last Sunday, ski season in Colorado is really over - for a few months.

With a blanket of heavy, wet June snow covering the area over the weekend, "The Legend" closed for the 2004/05 season on June 5.

Flakes swirled and snow piled up under overcast skies for most of the weekend, but it didn't faze the diehard skiers and riders there for the ski season finale.

The season-ending bash featured a Little Hercules concert near the base lodge and plenty of Hawaiian shirts, brats, beers and bathing suits.

Under partly cloudy skies on Sunday, it was the best of both worlds - sunny, with 8 inches of fresh snow reported in the final three days of the season.
