Spring is here and as the days get longer and sunnier, the snow is plentiful which means there is still plenty of skiing to be had. The season is ripe for corn snow, that awesome mashed potato texture you get when winter’s consolidated snowpack warms up under the midday sun. Some resorts are closing this weekend, but plenty across the state will be open for some time. Here’s the list.
Burke will be closed midweek and reopen on weekends from April 7 until closing weekend, April 20-21.
Jay Peak Resort
Jay Peak Resort will be open until May 5.
Killington has not yet set a closing date. The Beast crew is hopeful for skiing and riding into June.
Mad River Glen
Mad River Glen will stay open until April 14.
However, according to Marketing Director Eric Friedman, lifts could run as late as Easter Weekend. “If the stars align and weather reports look good we may try and go one more additional weekend in an effort to break our record for the longest season so be sure to stay tuned for updates.”
Also new for this weekend, Mad River Glen is planning to host its first ever pond skim!
Mount Snow will stay open until April 14 and celebrate closing weekend from April 12-14. Catch their Golden Egg Hunt on Sunday and search the mountain for a chance to win a 2019-2020 Peak Pass.
