    Not just not being groomed, but also not even being skied for the most part...I'd think that has some impact as well.

    Well somebody up there was skinning it restrictions or not. I happened to pop on the Bear Mt. webcam a few minutes ago and low and behold somebody was skiing down with their pups.

    Yesterday morning on the Superstar cam I saw a single set of tracks on some fresh snow . Maybe someone has night vision goggles I could borrow

    What I hear is there's "limited enforcement" of the no trespassing at K. Honestly though if you're there and your car doesn't have green plates expect to have tires slashed and a busted windshield when you return.

    I'm not giving up hope on a couple late-May weekends. I'm not optimistic, but think it's within the realm of possibility. I think in 2 weeks we'll have an idea whether the hope is alive or if it's not happening.

    5 weeks ago no one thought this would be our world, no way to predict what the next 5 will bring.

    The Vermont stay at home order is until 5-15, so will have a better idea then.

    They're not going to allow mass gatherings for a while. That will prevent Killington from opening before next season, providing they would even want to. That place would be a zoo.

    Sun has the biggest impact on melting.

    Skiers and groomers add some heat. More so, winch cats on steeps - moving slowly, engine and metal tracks. But, marginal impact IMHO.

    It seems pretty obvious to me that large gatherings will be banned through at least the summer. There are rumors in Britain that pubs may be closed through the end of the year. If we see a second wave in the United States, don't be surprised if ski area bars are forced to close for at least part of next season.
