    The dreaded ''Closings 2019'' thread

    It's with a heavy heart that I pass this info along. I'm very surprised about Blue- their base is still deep & last couple years they've made it into April. Ppl on that Pa. site are p*ssed.



    Blue Mt Pa.: tomorrow Sat. 3-30-18 at 4 pm
    Elk: Sat. 3-30-18 at 4:30
    Montage: this weekend then re-open April 6
    Mountaincreek: 4-1-19
    Shawnee: closed

    BUT! Campgaw intends to go til next weekend (but closed early in the week). Hooray for the little guy!

    Yeah, Blue is definitely not closing Saturday due to lack of coverage. They are closed again today, too. I have never known a ski area to close so often for light rain/drizzle. It's getting a bit ridiculous.

    They didn't used to, sounds like they may be having financial problems.

    Definitely a money-saving move for whatever reason. I saw speculation on the PA site that the current owners are planning to sell. Maybe EPIC or IKON are in the market for a Poconos location to get a piece of the Philly market.

    On the other end of the spectrum, Mountain Creek was planning on calling it Monday 4/7, but announced today that they're extending the season to Sunday 4/7.

    I was planning on going there Monday for their last day, now maybe I'll get a couple more days there.
