Oh Mother!!! Letting the dust settle on an incredible weekend of May Spring Skiing at the last three ski areas standing : Mont St-Sauveur, Jay and Killington. Finally the weather cooperated and people turned out to enjoy the rays and the fresh corn.
Who’s season is over?
Who’s hanging on for an extra weekend?
They are scheduled to spin the Superstar Express on Friday to Sunday. Going as long as they can. Is it going to be the last weekend? Or can they make it to Memorial Day weekend?
Thanks for a great weekend. We’ll see you all Friday, May 16 for another weekend of super spring skiing and riding.
Intermediate and advanced skiing and riding available at this time. No beginner terrain is available. Late season conditions exist and walking may be required on some routes; please be aware and ski and ride responsibly.
The Superstar Express Quad is scheduled to operate 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Fridays and 8:00 a.m-5:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays as long as conditions permit. We will be closed for skiing and riding Monday-Thursday.
Before going in the weekend, Jay Peak and Mont St-Sauveur mentioned that the past weekend was going to be their last.
Jay Peak has snow. MSS has so much snow, that they have put on Ad to give it away via Kijiji.
Some people are hoping that MSS and/or Jay will change their minds and give us an extra weekend. Odds are low, but I’ve also seen a snowstorms in May. MSS made it to May 19 last season.
So without a surprise update, it looks like Killington will be the last one spinning. If there is a change or not, I’ll update this post with the latest information prior to the weekend.
Previous last day of the season:
2006: May 5 – Bretton Woods
2007: May 6 – MSS, Killington, Sugarbush, Wildcat
2008: May 11 – MSS
2009: May 4? – Sugarloaf on Monday?, MSS, Jay and Sugarbush
2010: May 3? – Sugarloaf on Monday?, MSS and Jay
2011: May 22 – MSS
2012: May 6 – MSS
2013: May 26 – Killington
2014: May ?? – Killington???
Historically Killington has generally been the last to close in the East, 14 times closing in June, however things have changed since the last time they stopped spinning in June back in 2002. Over the past decade Kmart hasn’t dominated the competition or even been close to being the last to spin in the East. Spring is here and the dark years seem to be over for fans of last skiing at Kmart.
Last to close since 2006:
Mont St-Sauveur : 6 times (4)*
Killington : 3rd times with this season?
Sugarloaf : 2
Sugarbush : 2 (1)*
Jay Peak : 2 (0)*
Bretton Woods : 1 in 2006
Wildcat : 1 in 2007
* Sugarloaf might have closed on the Monday after the last weekend in 2009 and 2010
