    i know.. was riding the lift @ catamount yesterday with my daughter, sketching out the rest of the season. we're going in CO for a week in April and will get a couple of days of skiing in. Daughter said that will be the end of her season and i started to question/challenge her but then i realized we're a week away from from March 1.

    i hope something changes in the weather and we get the snowiest late winter (spring) ever but i doubt it will happen.

    Mount Snow's GM in a print interview in a local paper last week said that they are committed to skiing and riding into April (If mother nature cooperates of course)

    Looking at their base depths yesterday on their core late season terrain, if we can get something, at least temperature wise, resembling a "normal" March, IMHO they have enough to make it to April based on what I've seen there over the years.

    They've got a healthy amount of snow on multiple Northface trails, Carinthia as always has a bunch of snow to push around as the season winds down, and Cascade to Canyon has some solid base depth as well. So they've got some pieces of the puzzle in place to ski into April for sure, with the caveat of Mother Nature Cooperating of course!!!!

    I'm sure the topic of "how long do you think you'll be able to stay open?" will be one of the 1st questions asked this weekend at the season passholders forum they're holding

    +1. Not sure if they can survive many more ~60 degree days, but there was definitely a ton of snow at Blue this weekend and it looks like they didn't lose any trails. Too bad they aren't really a late season player - I recall last season they closed around March 29 with a ton of snow on the mountain. If the Poconos make April, my money is on Camelback.

    Yup, Unless things change DRAMATICALLY towards the snowy and cold the next month or so, all of the trails that were open this weekend, won't be open if they make it to April, as they don't build larger base depths on all of their snowmaking trails. Their core snowmaking trails, that typically are what is left at the end of the season, trails they do tend to make more snow on, have what historically I have seen to be enough snow to make it into April, IF WE GET A "NORMAL" MARCH temperature wise at least
