Lucky you. I'm sure these extra days make up real nice for all the PNW rain, fog and wind Dec-Feb.
Spoken like a true ignorant East Coaster... That's right, it sucks out here. I dunno, I guess that one rain day at Mt. Baker made up for all those 20+ inch days... Or not, since we hand many of them on the way to a 800+ inch snowfall winter. Wind? What's that?
Baker closed early because they are ripping out chair 4-5 for a new fixed quad... Yawn.
Whistler is ALWAYS open until June 9th, since it has a coastal snowpack and is glacial, at which time Blackcomb opens on the 10th for spring/summer skiing on the glacier and whatever else has snow. Crystal is reopening for Memorial Day weekend until the snow is gone (hah!). Timberline is lift-served thru the summer... There will be faceshots to be had on Chinook and Hwy 20 for a looooong time. Poor suckers, HAH!
