This is probably a long shot, but does anyone have intel on when Jack Frost/Big Boulder is planning to close? I haven't made it there yet this season and was hoping to make a quick trip on 3/30 or 3/31.

JF says they're open this week, I'm assuming that means through the weekend. BB has moved to Fri-Sun only.

I was worried that Hunter had scheduled their pond skim for April 7, but this week's storm sure helped. I think they're in good shape to have most of main face and northside open for 2-3 more weeks.

The fat lady can sing all she wants. Many of us are dancing to different tune. ;)

See this week’s wst thread. Many are getting the goods as far south as the Cats! :) :) :)

Checked the dates on some pics, I skied Big Boulder on April 14th last year. So there is a good chance they'll at least be open on the weekends for a bit longer.

It pains me to say this with how deep the snow is, but Mt Ellen's last weekend is scheduled for this weekend.

Attitash closes end of March almost every year. Occasionally they extend an additional weekend, but with the triple down this year I highly doubt they will. It would be a nice gesture to all the pass holders they have screwed this year by continuing to stand by that garbage lift.

They'll be pulling new pipe up for Moat and Cathedral when the lifts close soon. Wish it was new lift towers instead...

Greek Peak's last day was today. I drove through pouring rain to get there today. Questioned my sanity, but no rain at the hill, a few flurries late morning. They waited til morning to groom, smart move. I skied behind the groomer my first run. Everything stayed soft and sweet til the temps dropped into the thirties, then things became much firmer.

I purchased next season's pass today. There are some nice perks in the upcoming season. One free Holiday Valley weekday. A discount at Mad River. A couple days at West Mountain. And the biggie, Greek has joined the Freedom Pass. So 3 days each, Plattekill, Bolton Valley, and Magic, sweet. Also Purgatory, Cooper, Hesperus, and Sunlight in Colorado Never heard of the last two. Anyone ever been?

Wachusett's last day is April 7th (closed midweek and reopening 4/5,6,7). Yesterday, the Polar area was decent and will make it one more week with some snow pushing. Monadnock side was almost shot and will probably melt off in large part during the week.
