When the season’s this good, you never want it to end and thanks to the over 250” of snow that has fallen so far this season, Winter Park Resort’s iconic Mary Jane will remain open three extra weeks, with closing now slated for Sunday, May 12. The Winter Park side will still close on the originally scheduled closing weekend of April 20-21 with Spring Splash still scheduled for Sunday, April 21, the culmination of four straight weekends of Winter Park Bash + Splash events.
This will be the fourth consecutive season that Mary Jane’s season has been extended, and May 12 marks the second-latest closing date in Winter Park history, with only 1998’s May 25 Mary Jane close being later. It all adds up to three extra weeks to enjoy Mary Jane’s world-famous moguls, tree-skiing, and C-Lot parties. Exact available lifts and terrain will be released closer to the extension but visitors can expect many of their favorite Mary Jane and Parsenn Bowl Territory lifts and runs to be available.
The 2018-19 season truly has been impressive in terms of snowfall, with Winter Park currently sitting at 125% of its season average to date.
Mother Nature has already delivered nearly 75″ of fresh snow this month. With April fast approaching, one of our snowiest months of the year, it should be an epic finish.
