t-the-eastoh, and $15 lift tickets on friday
hikemowardDoes anyone know the average closing dates for resorts in Tahoe like squaw valley or northstar
john18061806I wish ski hills near me had owners that would be down to just run one lift until all the snow is actually gone. No chalet operations, no ski patrol, just 2 lifties and one run. Charge like $20 a ticket and dedicated riders would flock.
ttelrabthis is pretty much how big boulder does it during march when they can,
hikemowardDamn these responses have given me a lot more respect for whiteface. Ski the east!
207Don't get me wrong Whitey is so much fun to lap and their parks are so fun, but it's not like they're holdin it down in terms of late season closing in the east. They're not even open for weekday skiing and they're closing this weekend. Sunday River and Sugarloaf are still open 7 days a week, skiing on like 20 trails. Killington and Jay Peak are likely the same. I skied Whiteface closing day last year it was this weekend last year too. I then skied Jay Peak for literally 3 more weeks into May. Killington and Sugarloaf also go into May. Whitey is the shit, but you're making it sound like they have the latest closing date on the east.
eheathPlaces out west close because they don't make any money during april and don't care about their pass holders, which I don't blame them its business. PC last year was open til april 18th and they could've been open til april 17th this year for sure, but that's just how vail and other large corps do business. Places like snowbird, alta, brighton etc are all open this week and snowbird will be open into may, because that's how they do business.
Peter.don't a few places out there have to close by a certain date because they're on state park land or something?
john18061806March skiing is pretty standard no matter where you are... At least 1-2 weeks of it. I'm talking about getting all the snow pushed into 1 or 2 runs for late April into May.
SkiBum.East places stsy open because east marketing is all about snowmaking and open first close last. Dumb business.
Uncle_RemusWhiteface is open because there is enough snow to get down to the bottom. there is a pretty fun spring park right now with like a 25 jump/ hip option. come enjoy this totally beautiful, also feel free to buy your park rangers a beer!
freeskibum82whiteface is still open because they have the state budget to do so and will spend every dollar they were given. it is run by the Olympic Regional Development Authority and given funding by NYS.
