They are, however, working on plans on how to reopen. During a regular season, the ski area can stay open as last as July 4.

Gov. Jared Polis ordered all ski areas and resorts to close on March 15.

"When conditions are right, we will try and re-open. That time is at least a few weeks away. We are working on plans of how to open," said Arapahoe Basin's Chief Operating Officer, Alan Henceroth.
