Christopher Mullen Post IndependentSnowboarders and skiers go down a run at Sunlight Mountain Tuesday afternoon.

Closing day at Sunlight Mountain Resort was scheduled for March 30, but due to the great snow conditions, the area will re-open for an extra weekend April 5 and 6.

Lift tickets will be $40 on Saturday and Sunday.

The mountain will not be open during the week of March 31 through April 4, but snowmobile tours will still continue to operate as usual.

The Annual Beach Party Pond Skim Spectacular will still take place on Sunday, March 30. The best skimmer will receive a Season Pass to Sunlight for next season, and the best costume will win a brand new K2 snowboard.

The theme is Beach Party, so dig out your favorite bikinis and Speedos and enjoy boat drinks while being entertained by people splashing in the waves and live music by The Poser Band. Registration is $20 and will be open from 9:30-10:30 a.m.

Skimming will begin at noon, and live music will begin directly after the show.

On April 5 and 6, the Tercero and Primo lifts will be in operation, and all services will be available except the Children’s Center. The Sunlight Ski & Bike Shop’s hours will remain the same as winter hours opening at 8 a.m. and closing at 7 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
