I think K pulled it off for New England since they closed at 5pm Sun. & Jay closed at 4pm. Even if Jay opens next weekend they're still closed as of now making K king for the longest continuous ski season in the east. I read one place in Quebec is still open but they're not part of this survey. I forget who I voted for but it wasn't K. Never expected them to be the last standing this year. With the exception of the first 50 feet of the head wall on Superstar the rest of the trail still had plenty of snow when I left Sat. So did upper/lower Skyelark & lower Bittersweet but there were a couple of breaks on those trails. They may have been able to push for another week but we'll never know now. Last year there was more snow on the trails when they closed May 1.

+1If Jay opens next weekend, they are the King of Spring.
The only people that seem to care about the "continuous season" are K homers, as "concidently" K won't operate on a weekends only basis. Most others seem to agree that weekends only early or late season make sense from an operational standpoint, and the open/close dates count in related discussions. Most continuous days is a seperate point entirely or an interesting footnote.
Go to Jay if you can. Go to St-Sauveur if you can. Go to Seven Springs tomorrow if you can.I think people who are into this whole King of Spring business owe them a visit. You have to support ski areas that get it and that go for it.
Update 3pm: No one is spinning today, but with the new snow, Seven Springs (Pennsylvania) which has been closed for weeks will spin tomorrow for one day only.
