    Sunday April 22nd was Mount Snow's last day last season.

    So if they go the extra weekend and operate through Easter Sunday, the 21st this year, no real difference. Add in the 3 or extra weekends in October and early November at the start of this season, and it's been a very good length season for Mount Snow this year

    You are omitting the number of acres and front loaded days at the beginning of the season vs Magic. So, not that interesting in reality.

    Not closing on the 14th (or possibly the 21st) due to lack of snow. It's a business decision, and a similar decision that many ski areas make every year

    Wow, seems like an early switch to weekends only given the snow level. This, in addition to Attitash not even making it to April for daily ops and Crotched not making it to April at all just shows why we should all appreciate the Killington management team that pushes the season into mid-May. I know this timeline is still considered normal for Peak, but the current snow is certainly above average and should warrant staying open longer.

    Crotched should have been open last sunday but I doubt they would have had the coverage to open this weekend. Fact is it was a very lean year in southern nh compared to the greens and whites. Trees were skiable only a handful of days. Wildcat however is deep, would be nice to see them open daily through nh vacation week. Longterm forecast suggests continued below average temps.

    Pats peak which always closes before April (last day Sunday 3/31) still has plenty of coverage so it isnít a coverage thing. Well I guess it could be if the crotch cheaped out on snow making.

    With many areas, it's a lack of interest vs. a lack of snow. Kids are switching to spring sports and golf is starting up again. My wife and I have skied many a last day with prime conditions....and no one is there. They'll clamor to ski the WROD in November, but are nowhere to be seen when it's sunny, 50, soft snow and 75% of the mountain is open. Is what it is I suppose.

    Itís all formulaic and analyzed by computers. Laws dictate the minimum number of staff/facilities required for ex amount of trails/lifts etc. if the analytics and projections donít meet the cost of op or desired profit margin, itís fiscally dictated they close.
