Spring skiing.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Good news is temperatures are hovering around -18C, 0F overnight.

Bad news is I went to my local ski hill this morning after doing some other stuff just to see when the 1/2 day ticket would start, and it's closed.  hopmad.gifconfused.gif

Ghost....

 

Even down here in southern New England my local hill is 100% open.......

Catskill/Berkshire areas are close to 100% open, but all will probably be closed by April 10.

 

A real shame - with the cold weather forecast for the next 2 weeks, they might still be skiable in early May.

We're still skiing powder.

No powder for a while, but snow is winter-hard for sure. And we're open til May.

 Just came back from Hunter. Plenty of cover on most of the trails. East side is the way to go, don't ski West side (no sun, all ice). They've got enough snow for many more ski days.

The past week has been the best skiing of the season (powder)...  More snow on the way!

To put it politely....WTF???

 

I guess the local skiers at your local hill are not what matters.

 

Sorry..........

 

Area hills are talking the weekend of May 1 as closing date

JF,


Kirkwood is listing 687"-711" for the season, with 141" - 155" coming from the last storm system.  Utah and California won't have coverage issues this spring!

Amazing skiing here just now.  No corn in sight.

 

Here's yesterday:

The skiing today was, if anything, better.  And it's still snowing!

Gore Mtn. NY is experiencing February-like conditions (high temps over the past 5 days or so have remained at/below freezing, with temps in the teens at night).  Glades are in nice shape, bumps are definitely on the stiff side.  Groomers were also pretty good; in a couple of isolated spots the wind managed to blow off the snow cover, leaving boilerplate.

 

Good news is Gore doesn't appear to be losing snowpack, so Spring conditions are delayed, but we may end up getting a longer season out of it.

Whistler's 5000+ feet of vertical have been pretty variable over the past few days. Some soft snow at the top of harmony which turns to hardpack midway down, then depending on the time of day, either hardpack or slush to the base. But next week we're getting another cold front and looking forward to another 30cm of snow over the week. So winter's not totally over here yet!
