ASPEN, Colo. -

Aspen Mountain is extending its season after getting around 300 inches of snow.

The mountain was set to close April 20 but will stay open for weekend skiing and riding for the following two weekends.
Aspen Skiing Co. vice president Rich Burkley says conditions are "just too good not to go skiing."
Breckenridge is also extending its season for another week and will remain open through April 27 because of its deep snowpack.
