We have just started Spring skiing, but … some are already throwing the towel. Despite a deep snowpack, great coverage and awesome conditions, some skiers, riders and ski areas will stop real soon. I never understood why the season was so November-March instead of December-April. Skiing in the month of November is generally crowded, limited trails on a WROD (White Ribbon of Death), with hard frozen surfaces plus the temperature is gray and cold.
I’m not going to start the Ski Mad World’s Annual Eastern Closing Thread countdown this week, but you better get out there if you still want to ski, because before you know it, the lifts won’t be spinning and you’ll have to climb if you want to ski it. I’ll try to list of spinning ski areas in the second weekend in April. Hoping to continue the Eastern Closing thread in May and maybe into June.
