This past weekend marked the end of ski season for a majority of the ski resorts around North America. Unfortunately many of these resorts have closed down even though there is still plenty of snow available for skiing on. A handful of resorts across the map will continue to operate on weekends as conditions permit. However if you aren't ready to throw in the towel on your season and you find yourself seeking more than two days a week of skiing then maybe it's time to take a late spring trip. The west coast was lucky enough to experience an average season which will allow for daily skiing deep into May if not later and these eight resorts below will provide you with all the corn you can handle.
