    I love this list! Thanks for compiling it each year.

    A couple of comments, though.
    1) You have Rigaud in the Eastern Townships.
    2) I thought that Burke has only committed to April 8th but may extend if conditions permit.

    Thanks for the information, it's really appreciated. This year compilation was much longer, and the first one is always the case, as I go through various ski area websites to try to find a closing date. I didn't spend as much time on specific areas as I would probably still be searching their website, Facebook pages, etc.

    I guess I should have renamed the region Eastern Townships and Montérégie due to the addition of Mt St-Bruno and Rigaud as they are generally not part of this thread. Rigaud definitely doesn't fit in the Laurentians either. That will be less of an issue in the next post.

    I've already found out (planning my own late season mad dash to use the Foxcard), that...

    Middlebury Snowbowl is closing on April 8 (Friday-Sunday only)
    Smugglers' Notch is closing on April 16 (that's what I was told on the phone). Madonna chair open until April 8, after that it will be Sterling only.

    The blogpost has just been updated. Next post will probably around Wednesday night.

    Agreed. If it was a joke it was just stupid.
