No changes for this weekend, same two ski areas standing. Killington lost Skyelark since last weekend, it’s now down to both areas traditional last season runs.
There is 4 possible days of skiing available around this weekend starting at Killington this Friday and closing out on Monday at St-Sauveur. Both areas will be open on the weekend. Go out if you can, not many days left.
MSS confirmed that they will be open for Victoria Day (Holiday in Canada). Since MadPat’s has been keeping track in 2006, this would be the first time for liftserved skiing on the May Holiday if MSS is open on Monday. MSS closed on Saturday May 22, but didn’t make it to the Monday. Killington is, of course looking to make it to June 2, but will be closed midweek. So St-Sauveur is the only one open on Holiday Monday. Late May skiing options were more frequent when I had just gotten my driver’s license. Not only at Killington, but at a few places like Gray Rocks.

This is the latest date we’ve had two ski areas still open in that same time period. The previous latest pair was MSS and Jay on May 15 when both of them were still open.
Killington hasn’t been open this late since May 2003. Kmart made it to June the previous season.
Of course, this is not the latest St-Sauveur or Killington has been open. Or that two ski areas have been open this late. Killington’s latest day on record is June 22, 1997. MSS’s latest closing is June 2, 1997. At least 4 Eastern ski areas were open on June 1, 1997; in addition to K and MSS, Sugarloaf and Tremblant were also spinning for one last day.
Killington hasn’t been open this late since May 2003. Kmart made it to June 1 the previous season.
