The ski area will shift to a weekend schedule for Saturdays and Sundays on June 1 and 2, June 8 and 9, weather conditions permitting.

"It has been one of the best winter seasons I can remember during my more than 25-year career, and we are thrilled to keep it going for our guests and passholders," said John Buhler, vice president and chief operating officer at Breckenridge Ski Resort, in a statement.

During those weekends, operations will be based out of Peak 7 with advanced and expert level terrain on the Independence SuperChair.
