Sugarbush - maybe on weekend


Word has it that as of this morning, Sugarbush has officially committed to going for it.

Of course, I have to get the green from home also. :oops:

LAST CALL!!!

Last Call? :shock:

Looks like it might be the last weekend of lift-serviced skiing in the East.

All but Bretton Woods are schedule to close on the 30th or 1st.

PS. I don't remember any times in the last 25 years where no Quebec ski area have open in May. This is almost true for Vermont with Killington closing on Monday May 1st. :? This will be the earlier closing for K in over 30 years.

Not good, not good at all. :cry:

Brettonwoods looks like they will make another week with a bit of luck. They made snow on Friday night/Sat am again. Looked just like it was at the base, but good for marketing.
