    Killington still going at it - not surprising they lay it on thick on Superstar

    Not on the list Aspen and Purgatory opening for Memorial Day weekend


    Breck extends season into second weekend in June IMG_1318.jpgand A Basin will stay open into mid June and possibly longer.

    Snowbird is still open. And we got fresh powder last night!

    Add to the list Squaw Valley and Mammoth.

    They are on ski central open list. With freshness at Snowbird, do they plan to extend?

    Yes. They announced solid plans to stay open weekends until June 16th. Then they are hoping to stay open to July 4th.

    We just hit 707" for the season. I can personally attest that it is still midwinter up there. We've had very little spring skiing to date.

    Since A-basin is quitting the Epic Pass, Breck will be the new springtime resort for Vail. Breck has the altitude, but it's a pretty awkward configuration with the lifts. I think they would do better to add an upper lift at Keystone, which is in the fuzzy long range plans.

    Breck has been keeping Independence Chair (peak 7) open as well as Peak 6 which leads back to Independence. Other than that it is the upper bowls off Imperial and the T bar. Still skiing nice with lots of new snow over the past two weeks.

    Vail’s play is to have Keystone open early as in October and Breck to stay open longer to compete with A Basin. US Forest Service has approved this plan.

    My information that I post is often checked and properly researched. It's the East only, but I've seen so many errors on site like the one above that my eyes bleed.

    Mammoth just announced that they are open daily up to August if you can believe that. I have to make a trip out to CA for work at the end of June so afterwards we are going to swing by Mammoth for a few days then Squaw for the 4th. These photos are of the pole at the summit in the summer vs what its looks like up there now at Mammoth. The base depth is still at 90 inches the summit depth is 150 inches, the summit has had over 700 inches of snow this year.......7006110_large_1437677896.jpgD7A_6t0U8AANDEM.jpeg
