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.

Sunday River is not planning for May 1st turns this year. April 29th is Ski Mania day and planned closing.

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.

Mohawk in CT closing today. In the past they've had customer appreciation day the last day of the season, free skiing for all. But today i see they are selling $30 tix. not sure if because it happens to fall on Easter or they just changed plans.

hilarious April fools joke that results in loss of customers for the last weekend :p

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

Holy shit you were right! I closed the page right away to check out other hills. Hopefully, for Sunapee’s sake, most are reading another line further than I am.

Mt. Peter in Warwick, NY had their last day Thursday 3/29.

Mountain Creek in Jersey plans on being closed mid-week this week and re-opening next weekend for the last 2 days of the season on Bear Peak. I skied there yesterday and the conditions on Bear were still great with a good base.

Don’t see how Wawa makes 4/15, even next weekend looking dicey given how thin the base was yesterday and how fast it was going, Smith headwall was down to bare rock and dirt in a few spots...

Winter in the Canyon, Spring at Bear and other southeast faces. Superstar going strong. Speedo King hasn't even made an appearance yet. When you're skiing trails like Roundabout closing isn't even on the horizon.
