    I've made a few tiny edits with the latest information I saw.
    A few confirmations on open or not this weekend.
    A few new extended or retracted closing dates (ex: Saturday instead of Sunday or adding an extra weekend).
    And one surprise one day opening today (Thursday) for Northeast Slopes for one day only.

    Killington on Friday- yes or no? Looks like rain won't start up again until late in the day on Friday.

    Thanks. I just checked hour ago and it was still not announced.

    Wow...

    Today is not the day to sit inside writing marketing copy so I’ll keep this short. In true Mad River Glen fashion, we are going to go against all sound and reasonable ski area management decision-making principles and open for one more day on Saturday only. We will operate the single chair only from 10am-4pm. It is going to be warm, wet and probably require some creative "skiing" to get down the mountain.
    Major update on my blog post.

    Update, April 17, 2:00pm: Wash out Easter Weekend. Ski areas are looking at all the rain in the forecast and wondering about the weekend plans. Regardless of the huge amount of snow, some decided that they will not open for one last weekend at Easter.


    So far these include:
    Camp Fortune
    Le Massif
    St-Mathieu
    Val d'Irčne
    Whiteface
    Burke
    Smuggs


    Other decided to reopen today Wednesday on the last sunny spring day prior to wet Easter weekend. Miller moved it closing date to today, while Mad and Smokey haven't made a call on this weekend.

    Wildcat announced on Facebook early this week they will be weekends only after Easter. May 5th is the goal, but I'm guessing 4/28

    I skied Wildcat today, epic corn bump afternoon, but base is getting thin. I agree 4/28 should not be much of an issue. 5/5? They would really have to want to do it, and that is usually not the case. And the mountain was packed today by Wildcat standards as lift lines reached 3 or 4 minutes at peak. Families will come out during spring vacation on the nice days.
