Late season East Coast Skiing?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm flying in to Boston from Europe next week and I'm looking to get a quick couple of days skiing in on the East Coast.

 

Last time I went to Killington which was awesome, but the snow is looking a bit thin with loads of the resort closed...

 

Can anyone recommend somewhere that might still be a goer for the next couple of weeks? I was looking at Sunday River, but am open to any suggestions!

 

Cheers, daveepic

Hi Dave — welcome to Epicski!

 

We've had a terrible season this year, but a number of resorts are still open. If your expectations are reasonable (for this season), you can get some great skiing in.

 

Here are three in Vermont:

 

Word is that Stowe's still skiing pretty well: 48 trails open; limited lift service.

Killington: 31 trails open

Jay: 45 trails (season total snowfall broke 200" last night — not bad, considering Killington's 75", Okemo's 50-ish) — kind of a hike from Boston.

 

Most open terrain will be intermediate-advanced, and there'll be thin cover in places.

 

Québec got good snow late, and Tremblant, Mont Ste. Anne, and Le Massif are all doing well. MSA, for instance, reports 67 trails open, all abilities.

 

Can be done.  Good luck!

I'd look into Sugarbush.....Snowball (great blue cruiser)still open is a good sign to me.....

Sunday River has the most open terrain but is going to a weekend only schedule starting tomorrow. Stowe is closing Spruce & the gondola after tomorrow also but will still be open 7 days a week through the 21st. Sugarbush said they might be closing Heavens Gate after tomorrow leaving only trails off the Bravo lift open. Killington will still have Superstar & K-1 trails open but don't expect upper North Ridge or upper/lower Snowdon trails to be open even though they still have snow because those lifts won't spin. The middle Snowdon trails will still be accessable. Only other players are Jay & Sugarloaf which I can't tell you much about. Wildcat might still be in play also.

 

edit: Jay sounds like it picked up a bunch of snow this week, 52 trails open.

Go to the Loaf for the best party in the east this weekend. Reggae and bluebird skies on tap

Tremblant just around 14 inches. Seems as though almost every other resort is not doing so hot currently.
