This is up on Okemo's web site.

With already amazing conditions and up to A FOOT of new snow expected today, Okemo has decided to push back closing day until Sunday, April 22nd. Hope you haven't packed away your gear just yet!

YAHOO!!!

Awesome! At a time of year when many resorts close due to low skier traffic, you just got to respect a resort that pushes back their close date! Kudos to Okemo.

Down near me, Intrawest's Snowshoe moved their closing date *up* a week sooner (from 4/8 to 4/1), even though there was still good snow on the ground and they would have gotten 10-12" out of the Easter weekend storm (and now another 12-20" from the Nor-easter). This after touting the original Apr. 8 close date for months. What a bunch of losers.

Guess which resort is primarily in existence to make money and which one is there for the skiing....

They're all there to make money. Some just have a little more soul.

Of course, the accuracy and resolution leave something to be desired...

On the good side, we note that Colorado and western British Columbia are due to get hammered. Much of Colorado is still open as is W/B in BC.

On the not-so-good side, we note that central Nebraska is going to get dumped on. Lots of good skiing there, for sure!:

And how come it's showing some snow accumulation at the southern tip of Florida? Not much, admittedly, but not zero, either. I can hardly wait to read about the mass panic that will result!

Jiminy Peak, MA is re-opening again this weekend.
Second weekend in a row that they have re-opened after "Closing" April 1.

I'll bet what is in Florida is verga. Snow at the upper elevations that doesn't reach the ground. Ya that's is.

Stowe claims 27-40 inches in the past week and a season total of 331 - might have to do something Saturday! Wax em up ....

Endless Winter!!!

It will for me if I can't get up to Killington soon, I've already missed some of the best stuff. Just live too damn far!

And don't forget Banff. We traditionally have the longest regular seasons and best snow in North America. I'm still going to get in six more solid weeks of fantastic 'rain-free' skiing, with complete coverage of the mountain at Sunshine Village, after which they close (not because of lack of snow but because everyone's out mountain biking, golfing, etc. etc.).

You don't, but I do and I still will get 20 days in VT this season. Get your butt up there and stop whining.

Too far? : :

I live in Virginia and I got almost 9 days in VT this year (1 day was at Jiminy Peak ).

Matter of fact, when I pass NYC I consider myself "almost there"!

that;s dedication!!!

You don't know what you got til it's gone - Joni Mitchell

yup - there's some real dedication out there. Gotta do it. Same thing happens in SLC too - some locals b*tch unless they get 2 foot fresh so they don't bother going except the best pow days.

Except Bushwacker

OK, OK, it's not that far, about 6 hours for Stowe. And I would do it more often but would end up doing it alone most of the time as the wife, while very dedicated, isn't that dedicated. I just don't know anyone by me that skis. I do hit the Catskills regulary as I have a house up there.

You go solo or in a group?

I do live in the north-east and baseball season doesn't exist until the Sox are due for their annual collapse (sometime in late August / early September usually).

the storm missed most CO resorts. Went too far soouth - very sad as I was hoping to go up tomorrow for 16 inches of fresh. Oh well.
