i skied magic this past friday and all trails were open with no bare spots on the groomers and not much thin cover on the rest with exception of the double diamond trails. even red line and master were skiable, so the closure was definitely not due to lack of snow or the rain storm. as talisman points out, many ski areas close during the last week of march that are not destination resorts. most ski areas close with most trails open, if not fully open. for example, burke will close next weekend 100% open. cannon would have closed next weekend with everything but tramline and kinsman open but they extended the season another week due to lots of snow. as a state run operation that can see past making a killing profit wise, cannon is a rare exception for adding a week past closing date. magic's long term financial sustainability has nothing to do with them closing this past sunday. when people stop skiing, ski areas close and us die hards are left to fume at fully covered trails under a lift not turning.
