Talk about working overtime to try and sugarcoat a crap sandwich. A lot of words saying it basically sucks.

From today's MRG snow report:

Yesterday we saw spring-like temps that surged into the 40's rendering us some soft turns albeit with thin cover. Today's continued balmy and wet conditions should offer us more soft turns as we will be enjoying skiing on nearly all of our legendary main mountain trails with skiing surfaces best described as "variable" serviced by 3 of our 5 lifts. By variable we mean that there is some decent skiing along the edges on top of the bumps and in various nooks and crannies. The recently groomed trails are skiing pretty nicely but there are certainly some ice flows to negotiate. With a positive attitude good skiers will enjoy themselves on the technical, steeper terrain, truly the kind of conditions that make MRG skiers great.

MRG calls it for the season:

Mad River Glen wrote: Ski It While You Can!

Well folks we have reached the proverbial end of the line for the 2016 ski season. We have done all we can to extend things just as long as we could but we have flat out run out of snow. It should be another magnificent day to be up on the hill today with soft snow, sunny skies and temps pushing up towards the 50 degree mark. If you have been waiting for your spring skiing fix at MRG you should come on up and do it right MEOW! The Practice Slope Express Double will spin today from 9 AM to 4 PM accessing the teeniest and weeniest array of skiing options. Please note that as an added incentive all MRG Season passes will be honored. Unfortunately the recent balmy weather and rain took their toll and we have been forced to stick a fork in the main mountain - she is done! While it certainly looks like today will mark the end of the trainwreck that has been the 2016 season we here at MRG have not given up all hope. We will remain on standby for re-opening IF we get a VERY significant snowfall. Hey, stranger things have happened so be sure to stay tuned for updates.

Edit to add: MRG final day, 45 days of operation total, with most of those days on the Practice Slope. This was all they had open.
