Despite recent storms bringing piles of powder to the skifield, Coronet ski area manager Nigel Kerr said the warm spring days meant what was there would disappear quickly.
"It’s a low skifield [and] that’s just life for Coronet Peak.
"We’re going to go until [Sunday] — we’ve had a really good year, we’re really happy with the outcomes, but we have to close.
The Remarkables would resume daily operations from September 28 and remain open until October 11, Mr Kerr said, as had been the plan for most of the Covid-disrupted season.
He said numbers at Coronet had been "twice as good" as had initially been expected, however, he did not have high hopes for a vastly different 2021 season.
"It might be one of the few joys again, because it certainly has been one of the big joys for locals this year, to go skiing."
