Most resorts are on Federal land and are mandated to stop operations by certain dates. Many are in migratory areas and staying open would interfere with the animals normal patterns for moving to/from feeding and breeding grounds. I guess we should share....(harder to accept on powder days)

Concerning Crystal Mountain Ski Resort

Quote:
During the elk calving season (May 15-June 30), the base area at Crystal
Mountain will be fenced off to prevent guests from disturbing and impacting elk calving.


Quote:
When elk presence is noted in the SUP area, spring skiers will be required to ride the chairlifts (Alternatives 1 and 4)
and/or tram down to the base area; no spring skiing (May 15-June 30) will be allowed outside
of the Green Valley/Snorting Elk area in order to prevent impacts to elk calving.
Quote:
Mountain biking at Crystal Mountain would be limited to outside elk calving season

I've got 2 tickets for Chile, but they're mine, all mine (and my hubby's). Best I can do is take lots of photos and give you a good TR when I return.

I might go to Chile, the only problem is getting time away from work, not the $$. It's always one or the other I suppose. People who work a lot have money but not time, people who don't have time but not money.

I wrote this little silly poem to commemorate the end of this ski season:
The year winds on, winter turns to spring,
pure snow reveals gruesome secrets burried.
From rotting snow rotten flesh springs.

Torrents of water, dripping icicles, ring
the cry of old man winters retreat.
In the forest center, the snow still clings.

Here too the hot breath of summer stings
as mud and muck overtake fields of powder.
Mold too, finds many sufaces on which to cling.

Ski lifts, hot cocoa and snowbowrds once king,
now give way to crowded beaches and humming AC.
A summer of discontent is in the wings.


I really hate the summer, I already have allergies, it's hot and icky and there's no skiing or skiing only with great difficulty and expense. I need to move to Alaska, or switch off between Chile and N.America

If some "accident" befalls your hubby, let it be noted that I volunteered first to take his place.

As I've noted in other threads, there are a few instances in which ski areas have to close, but by and large they close due to the unprofitability. In Crystal's case, they're talking about having to be closed by May 15. Baker has to close by June 1 to allow the road to be plowed to artist point ...but actually closes in April. Most areas do not have these local issues. For instance, Stevens Pass is closing April 19, and has no restrictions on spring operations.

Um... I'm in Hawaii watching the palm trees sway and catching waves on the North Shore (only the little ones... and that's tough enough)
Here's the Alta snow report. People tell me there's no one there. You guys could all stay at my house just for shoveling the driveway if Mrs. Crab permitted...

schweet! Alta reports like that always raise my spirits

"Spring" in the PNW

I wouldn't be so depressed if I could start biking to work now.

But I'm just not 'core enough to bike in 40-degree rain.
