4/11/18 And the season rolls on…

Greetings from Saturday’s mogul skiing event at Killington, VT…news of the hour has to be the season that goes on and on, glad to see it, unfortunately springtime activities are ramping up and people are staying away in droves. A lot of resorts boasting mid-winter conditions, some even better than what they had mid-winter, but most are closed…since we’re in Vermont, a couple of areas say they’re gonna stay open as long as they can, namely Jay Peak and the aforementioned Killington. Southern Vermont’s Mount Snow had a fabulous day yesterday, snowed virtually all day long, fresh tracks everywhere. Unfortunately there weren’t many bodies on the hill to enjoy it. Sneaux will be banging it up on April 22, which is rather late for them…Minnesota’s Wild Mountain will be operating this weekend, so much snow they’ll even have the tubing operation going. Management has hinted about possibly serving up a slope in May; we’ll have to see…Michigan’s Boyne Mountain in the crosshairs of a snowstorm this morning, they’ll be open this weekend…Wisconsin? Plenty of snow still on the ground at Trollhaugen; they’re a bit concerned about the front half of the weekend but nevertheless plan to open Sunday, $20 tix if you show a pass from elsewhere…incredible conditions in much of Colorado, Loveland on the receiving end of 18″ this past weekend, same deal over the hill at Arapahoe BasinSnowbird UT still skiing the deep, more snow in the forecast tomorrow. Folks, I know it ain’t easy because plans are made and it ain’t usually this good, but damn, get out there if you can, send me a photo…info (at) skibum dot net…since we’re on the subject of Utah, here’s what’s left: Alta, daily thru this weekend, then weekends until May 6; Brian Head, Snowbasin and Solitude open thru this weekend, Brighton thru next weekend, and the ‘Bird ain’t sayin…back tomorrow with other news.
