Just checked the tickets on my ski pants. My last ticket for MRG last year was for March 27th, which if I remember correctly, was the closing day. Even took a two hour lesson in the woods. Of course we were all shoveling snow at the bottom of lower Bunny for several days so we could get down. Only time I remember my arms aching more than my legs by the end of the day!
Who knows? My fingers are crossed, and am hoping for that elusive April ticket too.
By the way, my wife heartily agrees with your comments about the Sweet Daddys.
