GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) -- Just a handful of Colorado ski resorts will be open after this weekend.

Aspen Mountain and Vail plan to close for the season Sunday afternoon, along with Breckenridge, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain, Eldora, Monarch Mountain, Silverton Mountain, Snowmass and Steamboat.

Winter Park and Aspen Highlands plan to close April 21. Loveland's closing day is May 5, and Arapahoe Basin is scheduled to close June 2.

The trade group Colorado Ski Country USA has said skier visits at its member resorts through February were down compared with the same period last winter, partly because of a dryer start to the season. Spring storms are bringing more snow though.

The National Weather Service say 5 to 10 inches of snow could fall in Aspen and Vail late Saturday through Sunday.
