    You're right, Mont St-Sauveur is missing.

    Notice the list wasn't US only, so they have been a last to close in the East... or next to last in the last few season. Until the other big name missing has it name back on the list, it need to start going what was taken granted for so long...that is have the longest season in the East, no question. It hasn't been the case in years until now.

    Quote from my blog last year:

    May is the norm for Quebec’s “Longest Season” ski area. After a similar bad late season ski weather, MSS out missed out on May in 2006 due a bad late season for many ski areas, MSS has made it to May for the last 6 years.Previous closing dates versus the best of the rest
    2006: April 30 (3rd) – Bretton Woods May 5 (1st) & Killington May 1 (2nd)
    2007: May 6 (best) – tied: Sugarbush, Wildcat & Killington.
    2008: May 11 (best) – Sugarloaf May 5 (2nd)
    2009*: May 3 (best?) – Sugarloaf May 4?? (best?), tied- Sugarbush & Jay Peak: May 3
    2010*: May 2 (best?) – Sugarloaf May 3?? (best?), tied- Jay Peak: May 2
    2011: May 22 (best) – Jay Peak: May 15 (2nd), Sugarloaf: May 9 (3rd)
    2012: May 6 (best) – Jay Peak : April 29 (2nd), Killington April 22 (3rd)

    * – Sugarloaf probably closed on the Monday
    Oh yeah, MSS’s season is at least a full two weeks longer than Killington. If you think back 15-25 years, when MSS was starting to mark a name for itself as the longest season in Quebec, no one would have thought that they would replace the mighty Killington.
    Jay and Sugarloaf have been way more consistent into making to it to May than Killington. The once mighty K only squeeze May (1 or 2) twice in the last 5 seasons. Finally, it looks like its changing this year, until then, they don't merit their name on that list.

    Why so rude, G? At least he is trying to add something of value around here.

    I prefer putting links up with the source (regardless if it's my blog or another source). I don't like getting pages of long list in a forum thread (if we talking about who's open or not), however if they're interested, they can see further. To each, his own, that is my preference after over ten years of read and writing on various forums.

    I joined Alpine Zone when someone I didn't know (except the alias which I had seen elsewhere) linked up to my blog and people started commenting on the subject. Just trying to add context. You are more than free not to click. I have over 300 posts on my blog, an extreme small number are ever linked up on any ski forum and I always do it when I know there is an interest from people and can contribute to the discussion.

    I bet that K will be in that list next season if they live up to what has been advertised. It was a rough season last year for many.

    Yes I remember seeing your report with pictures. Appreciate your reporting & blogs...

    Latest I've ever skied is May 17 at K. Don't remember what year that was. Won't be doing it this year because I can't ski due to injury. It was nice getting up there again this weekend even though I couldn't ski.
