If they are to bridge the gaps that are developing they will be spreading the remaining snow fairly thin. The pile above the headwall could be used to make a narrow path down but will get skied off very fast.

My bet is they don't reopen but if they do it will not be all day.

I think NYDirtBag sums it up rather accurately. Making that skiable today is a stretch. After another 60 hours of high speed melting?

If they did Friday morning (and dealt with missing the weekend traffic) instead of waiting until Sat, they likely could patch it together. I think the extra 24 hour burn until Saturday is going to be the coup de grace.

Looking at the webcam this morning. Looks like they could have 3 distinct patches available. If that's the case, I would say that they go for it. If the middle section, which often melts out quite quickly at the end, starts going rapidly today, then stick a fork in it.

Open with lift served, and walking/mud skiing required, that I could see, and why not cap it off that way in this season like none of us have ever experienced before (and hopefully will never have to experience again!!)

Another factor- showers with potential lightning this Saturday.

"""Despite how badly we want to hold onto spring skiing, Mother Nature has other plans. After assessing conditions and the forecast, it’s clear that the 2020-21 winter season at Killington has come to an end. We will not reopen for skiing and riding. Sunday, May 16 was officially the final day of winter operations at Killington.

Thinking back to Opening Day – Friday, Nov. 20, 2020 – we kicked off winter with uncertainty and new challenges, but we made it work. We made it happen. πŸ’ͺ With your help, we protected the longevity of the season, spanning 170 days at Killington – the longest season in the East! Thank you for being a part of this unforgettable season, for joining us in our Operation Stay Safe efforts, for being patient with us, and for choosing to ski and ride Killington.

Now, we welcome all that summer at The Beast has to offer. The Bike Park and Golf Course open Memorial Day Weekend! The Adventure Center is back in action July 1, and we’re welcoming events back this summer, including Cooler in the Mountains Free Concert Series presented by Bud Light Seltzer.

Cheers to year-round adventure! 🍻 Killington.com
