    Some great conditions out there.

    Sunday afternoon update for my list of Closing (Part 2 - see link above for full list):
    A few ski areas decided to try to get an extra weekend and make to April 21. The list is still preliminary now, but here are the one talking about trying to move their closing day:
    QC: Édouard
    ON: Blue Mtn
    NY :Gore, Whiteface
    VT: Snow
    A full and complete update will be made for Part 3 of the Eastern Closing Thread which should be up by midweek. Right now the high number of open ski areas next weekend would be around 20.

    I mentioned above that Snow is thinking one more weekend. However you are right, many areas are closing with lots of snow. I'll get a full update up on who's looking to open next weekend in the next few days on Ski Mad World.

    Sunapee is done for the season. There is enough snow to stay open for another weekend but there just aren't enough crowds for it to make sense money wise
    Days on the Snow:

    Was at Smuggs Sat and Sun this weekend. Skiing was fantastic but no one was there. The weather did look suspect but turned out okay.

    I wonder if skiers and riders aren't coming out because of the weather. Would there be more crowds if we had a great run of spring skiing? Its been three weekends in a row that don't quite meet peak spring corn skiing criteria for most mountains, especially northern mountains.

    Makes me wonder what next weekend is going to be like. A LOT less options. With good weather and spring corn conditions (hopefully), crowds might be strong next weekend especially due to pent up demand during these past two weekends of less than satisfactory spring weather. We'll see what happens. But having fewer options should increase "crowds" at areas still open to hopefully make them some money and justify the investment. Doesn't seem like almost any areas are going past next weekend (just the usual May suspects) despite many areas still being totally covered.

    I was at Jay Peak this weekend and there was a good amount of people, especially considering that it was snowing on the mountain, but probably raining everywhere else.

    I just updated the thread and it looks like ski areas in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Pennsylvania will still be open this weekend! As always, I could have missed something so let me know if something is missing or needs to be fixed.

    Put Mount Snow on the "re-opening" list!

    Saturday + Sunday, Nitro Express at Carinthia + Bear Trap Double if the snow back there doesn't melt out this week! They're grooming out the Mineshaft - Inferno route for the non park crowd!
