Yawgoo Valley had its last day of opperation yesterday. Pretty nice coverage when I past it on Tuesday. Drove by today and its a whole different story. The entire place looks like its been closed for weeks. What a shame.

Any predictions for who's next?

Thunder Ridge (Big Birch) threw in the towel after last weekend. Western exposure means quick spring skiing season :sad:

By the weekend of April 9-10 I bet we'll be down to four players in the Northeastern US. Don't see anyone south of VT/NH being open after next weekend.

Which four? Loaf, Cat, Jay, K-Mart?

Ski Bradford closed on Monday. Strangely, they still had great coverage. They didn't run out of snow, they ran out of skiers. They had some of the best conditions all season having blown a ton of snow once it got cold. Apparently people couldn't believe that if the tulips were coming up in the garden, Bradford couldn't possibly have snow.

I'd add Stowe, daBush, Stratton, Sunday River and Loon to that list.

Yeah, but if we're talking April 9-10, in an average year, wouldn't these be the only places really left standing anyway (in addition to Bretton woods)?

Normal winter April 10th

Snow, Stratton, Okemo, Killington, Sugarbush, Stowe, Smuggs*, Jay, Sunapee, Ragged*, Waterville*, Loon, Cannon, Bretton Woods, Wildcat, Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Saddleback.

* maybes. More dependent on how much business they did throughout the season and a reasonable amount of people showing up.

Those 18 probably would drop down to a dozen for the theoretical 17th and then by the 24th K, Bush, Jay, BW, WC, SR, SL, SB.

At least that's been my observation in recent years

I hope Whiteface can make it to April 9/10, because I've got some vouchers I'd like to use when I get back from out west. Either that or maybe I'll have to use them next weekend if the weather's "okay" - god this season STINKS.

I was at Whiteface Monday and Tuesday this week. Actually had a powder day on Monday. I think April 9th is gonna be a stretch though.
