    The other factor as well that can play a role more and more in this current era of multi resort passes, is if a pass product has a resort available in a general area, the question of how many resorts should they fiscally keep running later in the season, has to be considered as well.

    I'm sure that we'll hear the annual line from Peak soon about how Peak passholders can continue to get their turns in for a few more weeks at Wildcat, however that's a heck of a more substantial drive from the New York and further South areas that they're selling a bunch of passes in these days than Mount Snow. And when they go late season at Big Boulder, it's almost all dedicated to park features.

    The fiscal side of me gets this strategy for sure. The ski addict side of me doesn't like it as while it doesn't prevent me from getting later season turns on my pass, being purely selfish, it makes it much more logistically challenging and time consuming for sure...

    They got hammered with snow last March. This year was nothing even close to that.

I know this timeline is still considered normal for Peak, but the current snow is certainly above average and should warrant staying open longer.

    Its mid April and it's going to be 50 and rain all week. Not really all that unreasonable

    Lots of sections of welded Snowmaking pipe showed up this past week staged along the bottom of Olympic.... Replacing existing pipe on the Northface? Maybe adding snowmaking to Olympic?? Time will tell I guess.....

    I saw that pipe being delivered into the nearest parking lot to the Discovery Center a week ago Wednesday. I wondered where it was going? Looks like the promised snow-making expansion may be starting. But I like Olympic natural!

    I'd be OK with piping on Fool's Gold and Rusty Nail in Carinthia, Hop OR SHootout on the Main Face, and Big/Little Dipper in Sunbrook. Don't touch the North Face.

    I'm bad...only got 3 days at Mount Snow this year . I do eyeball the report frequently tho...seems like more grooming this year Dr. Jeff???

    At least Olympic is wide enough already where there should be no terrain changes required. When they start looking at runs like Jaws, Challenger, Uncles, Ledge, etc is when it's time to cry foul.

    Clarified by Mtn ops, the pipe currently staged at the bottom of Olympic, will be replacing old water pipe on Freefall this off season.

    The pipe will be pulled over the snow once closing day has happened
