So in the year that wasn't I was wondering what the consensus is on last day of snowmaking? Do you think areas will go later into the winter/early spring if Temps allow since they didn't spend a lot in late fall/early winter?

The way this winter has gone I am sure there will be an extension to the normal snowmaking schedule especially will the warm up next week.
Usual is mid Feb. but K blows in March on SS. I have seen Sunapee blow in March also one year. It depends on budgets.
As noted above, I find it hard to believe anyone makes snow past Presidents Weekend. Exceptions would be areas building base for late season turns that they have a rep for (SS at K, steins at 'Bush, etc).
As for the comment on no late March skiing - way way too early to call that. Its not even Feb yet. The last two seasons saw most of the snow fall in Feb and March. Heck, 2 years ago the first real Pow day at Magic was Feb 5th (MLK has one run, like this year) and they made APRIL!
