Get Those Spring Runs In At Northeast Resorts
Even though it might still feel like February as snow continues to fall on mountain resorts across the country, Northeast mountains are celebrating end-of season runs as they look ahead to summer activities and construction. Thanks to snowmakers and some great March snowfall, bases are still deep for those spring runs.
New York’s Whiteface reopens April 20-22 for their final weekend of skiing and riding. Gore will reopen on April 21-22, with pond skimming Sunday at 11:00. Bristol reopens the slopes this weekend for days 126 and 127 with $35 lift tickets.
The season is winding down, but not over just yet in Maine. Sugarloaf is still sitting on an average snowpack of 16-20 inches and planning to stay open daily until April 29. Sunday River will be spinning lifts on weekends only through the end of the month, leading up to the final day of the season April 29, complete with free lift tickets for everyone, an outdoor BBQ, and serious goggle tans.
In New Hampshire, Wildcat will be open daily (weather permitting) through April 22 and is shooting to ski and ride weekends into May.
For the ninth year in a row, Jay Peak will spin chairs into May, with seven-days-a-week operations through May 1. They hope to reopen for one last weekend May 5-6. The focus of spring operations will remain on the Stateside area, with all Tramside services closing April 17.
Thanks to Sugarbush's snowmaking team and Mother Nature's generous five feet of March snow, conditions are in great shape to finish out the season. They'll remain open daily at Lincoln Peak through April 22, then reopen for the following two weekends through Sunday, May 6 (including Cinco De Mayo and Ski and Tee Weekend).
At Vermont’s Killington, skiing and riding could go into June on the Superstar glacier. In order to fit in the $16 million in capital improvements planned for this summer, Killington has already begun plowing work roads and dismantling the Snowdon Quad. Ride the K-1 Express Gondola and Superstar Express Quad through April 22, and the Superstar Express daily through May 1. Beginning May 4, the Superstar Express Quad will turn Friday through Sunday until the snow is gone.
