    Looks like its just the Park, with "maybe" a chair lift running.

    Impressive nonetheless. Poconos, skiing/ridding, on snow, in May. Yeah, its been a cold spring....

    Yes, just Big Boulder Park.  Facebook chat fwiw indicates that a chairlift will be running at Big Boulder on Saturday May 5.
  • Jay Peak will not be open for another weekend.

    Consistent as Mothers’ Day Skiing (again) – Eastern Closing Thread 2018 – Week 7


    Here is this week's post. As mentioned above, Jay was hoping to add an extra weekend, but Mother Nature had other plans for Mothers' Day at Jay Peak.

    So again this season, it comes down to St-Sauveur and Killington. MSS decided to open tomorrow Friday.

  • MSS is planning on being opened until 5/21 according to their website. I guess Killington will go longer.

    Ski Conditions Report: A detailed report describing the snow conditions on the mountain the day of your visit. Skiers should become familiar with the following snow surface descriptions: Ice: Packed Powder, Slush: Packed Powder, Frozen Granular: Packed Powder , Packed Powder - A thin covering of snow over bare earth.

  • From what I can see online, there are still a few resorts opened for skiing out west:

    Timberline Lodge - Daily typically until Labor Day Weekend.

    Mt Bachelor: Daily until 5/27/18

    Mammoth Mountain: Daily through Memorial Day, possibly into June.

    Squaw Valley: Daily until 5/28/18.

    Red Lodge/Bear-tooth Basin 5/28/ - 7/8/18

    Arapahoe Basin: Daily through Memorial Day - Probably into June.

  • We still have a few options in the East, even if you want to ride a chairlift.

  • Ski Mag online had a list of open areas and said that the lasst day for Killington is May 28 (Memorial Day). I don't know if their source is semi-official or if like the TraceSnow app: June turns count for the 2018-9 season.

    From experience, I don't find these websites accurate. I find sites like onsnow, etc  generally give approximate dates. I never base any of my info on them.
