That holiday is the usual public closing of Whistler or Blackcomb and Sunshine. Blackcomb reopens later for the Horstman Glacier camps.

Make that one... K is the only game in town for lift served, but walking on and off the lift is required.

***Update: Friday May 19, 3:00pm: The MSS crew couldn't save the snow; the heatwave killed St-Sauveur season this week. MSS's last day was Saturday May 13.
