What are some trails at any mountain that just seem to never be open?

The trail under the Top Ridge triple chair at Gore. I've only been lucky enough to ski it once.

Scotty, K27 Has been open for many years for quite a while. AnnaPurna/Westway are the 2 that are rarely open.

Purna and Westway both open, but rarely in the same year. They will choose one or the other that gets the snowmaking.

Pico: Upper A-Slope never seems to be open.

Killington: They just took it off the map, but I don't think I'd ever seen Interceptor officially open. I've also never seen Rendezvous open, although it's a useless trail anyway.

Double Dipper (lower) usually opens every year although it's not usually #1 on the hit list with the guns. Yes the year before last it didn't open. That had more to do with constantly having to resurface the rest of the mountain because of weather, snowmaking requirements for the Dew Tour didn't help either. Otherwise they blow snow on it every year.

Flume has no snowmaking & is at the whims of mother nature.

In my mind, northern New England
I second Tramline at Cannon. I think it needs three feet of snow to be skiable and not ruin your rock skis.

Sugarloaf snowfields are usually open during the first 2 weeks of March. If it's been snowing in February, it's on.
