    True for about 4 more days! But Mammoth's closing it not stopping the preseason marketing, sales and planning. Even SkiNH has their 2017-2018 links set up for the 4th and 5th grade passports as well as discounted lift tickets but there is not real content.

    I saw a billboard for Whiteface on the NJ Turnpike last week (although to be fair it is possible it is there all year round).

    I think I saw the same billboard a little over a month ago when I was down in NJ visiting family. Might be there year round sadly.

    And the count downs are starting

    Back to school? More like back to snow! We’re officially 100 days away from Keystone’s Opening Day!
    and on Lovelands Website - less than 60 days for snow making

    I've seen several posts on Facebook about countdowns to snowmaking recently (probably from either Killington or Ski The East)

    So far this week I've taken delivery of new goggles for myself, new ski pants for my oldest son, adjustable poles for him.
    About to pull the trigger on some Roces adjustable ski boots as well. Now is a great time to buy the gear with all the sales going on.
