WEST DOVER, Vermont (March 30, 2009) – Officials at Mount Snow announced today that they plan to keep chairlifts spinning well into April, so long as weather cooperates.

“We are booking lodging reservations through April 12, when we will host our annual Golden Easter Egg Hunt,” said general manager Kelly Pawlak. “We are hoping that we will remain open after Easter, but we’ll have to keep an eye on the weather and business levels.”

Pawlak stressed that weather will be a major factor, and the April 12 closing date assumes cooperation from nature.

Starting Monday, March 30, Mount Snow will offer reduced spring lift ticket rates as follows: $59 adult, $49 young adult and $39 junior/senior. The same rates apply on weekends.

Also starting Monday, March 30, lifts will spin every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., including weekends.

As of March 29, Mount Snow had received 158” of natural snowfall on the season. An abundance of manmade snow was produced from November through February, building base depths up to 8 feet in spots. “A big snow base should help us through any early spring warm spells,” said Pawlak.

The mountain closed on Sunday, April 27 in 2008. Enough snow remained in the superpipe to host a rail jam on May 25, 2008.
