There's hella snow up in tahoe but I heard that a lot of the resorts close around May 1st because of some insurance or license issues? is this true? i always thought as long as there is snow they would stay open.
Does anyone know specific closing dates to all the differnt mtns? esp. Alpine, Squaw, N* (essentially everyhing on north).

i talked to one someone at alpine, and they said they would start spring hours soon, at then end of april most lifts would close, but at least summit would stay open, the park will be open, but not the lift, and she didnt' know wether they would be grooming it everyday or not? which sucks, they need to keep kangaroo open till the snows gone
^^ nah, kwood is bein stoopid and closing all weekday operations at least on may 1st. it's my bet that they will run weekends, but even that is doubtful. the park is nice. they did nock the pipe over , but they built a good jump line and a quarter pipe.

alpine should be open untill late may atleast, squaw till the end of may.
heavenly and kirkwood close end of april.
kirkwood normally say that they will be open on weekends till end of may but it normally doesn't last.
I'm really fucking pissed that sierra and northstar are closing so early with so much snow still left. but oh well you can buy a spring pass to alpine thats good untill closing day for 99 bucks. It's worth it, i bought it last year.
that's dumb that everyone's closein up cause they don't get much business due to the fact that now the only people who relly go are the ones with season passes. i think resorts should stay open as long as possible. I heard mammoth is tryin to stay open even during the summer this year.

it makes me so depressed when they all close. its like, projecting doom unto us. seeing a stopped lift on a hill during the summer is torture. pain. why must the snow melt? why?

Alpines site says May 22, kinda sux considerin they could easilly last into june...even into july if they wanted.
I was thinkin in July you could upload summit 6, ski alpine bowl chair all day, and download summit at the end of the day. Alpine bowl gets hit hard every storm that snow sticks forever in there and there is even a decent area for a park.
AHHHHHHHH I hate dreaming this sht up cause I know theyre never gonna do this
^ That is seriously bad news, i'm definately e-mailing them.

Now is the time to purchase the $99 Spring Pass! Because of phenomenal snow conditions, Alpine Meadows has decided to extend its season ALL THE WAY 'TIL THE END OF MAY! Alpine's closing day has been officially bumped to May 30, snow conditions permitting. Woohooooo!
^that's good but if they close the fucking park may 2nd that's fucking bullshit. That means fucking park riding is pretty much over because until then it's supposed to snow the whole fucking time
