There’s plenty left to do on-snow at resorts this spring. Here’s what’s happening, plus closing dates.
(Closing date TBD) Killington plans to stay true to its “longest season in the East.” They’ll continue to spin the Superstar Express Quad Friday through Sunday, weather permitting, until the snow is gone. Don’t miss the Killington Triathlon (ski, bike and run) on May 5.
Jay tentatively hopes to make it until May 13. “When/if we make it that far, we will have been closed the preceding five days and we’ll just be spinning the Jet,” the current snow report reads. “We will know more about this particular weekend as the forecast comes into better focus as we get closer to it.” A day pass currently costs $45.
Sugarbush ends with a bang this weekend. Saturday and Sunday, they’ll host a classic Vermont May weekend: skiing and riding, plus mountain biking and golf. The weekend includes Cranko De Mayo, a riding and skiing extravaganza with the Mad River Riders, Ski and Tee golf course opening day and Cinco De Mayo and Derby Day parties at Castlerock Pub and Rumble’s. “Snow conditions should be excellent and the cover is still ridiculously good for early May,” reads the snow report.
On top of that, for those who’s like to earn their turns, Mt. Ellen and Lincoln Peak are open for skinning (except the Valley House side, which is closed through May 6th). Grab an Uphill Travel Pass here.
While the mountain might have officially closed on April 24, Mount Snow will reopen its last patch of snow on Inferno for its annual Peace Pipe Rail Jam on May 26. Ski or ride for free, and grab a free weenie on the Carinthia Base Lodge deck.
