The Arizona Snowbowl announced Friday that, despite being about a month into spring, record snowfall has allowed the resort to remain open.
Snowbowl plans to stay open at least through May 5 and resort management has not decided when it will close the runs. That will depend on the weather and if the region sees more snow.
This ski season, the resort has seen the second highest amount of snow in 21 years. With 332 inches of snow so far, only the 2004-05 ski season saw more with 460 inches.
All the precipitation has meant the resort’s base remains over 80 inches deep, according to a media release.
This season is also nearing the longest Snowbowl has been open in the resort's history.
