Mad River Glenn ski resort and Bromley Mountain ski resort, both in Vermont, will both close down this week due to a lack of snow and the forecast of a warm rain.
“In an effort to be as transparent as possible during this challenging season, we’d like to let all know now that due to incoming weather for Wednesday, February 3, featuring .7 to 1.2 inches of rain and 45 mph winds, operations will be suspended 2/3 and 2/4 this week. Thursday will be spent drying out, assessing and repairing.” – Bromley Mountain via press release today
Bromley hopes to be back open at 9am on Friday.
“Due to unseasonably warm weather and eroding snow pack we have decided to suspend operations until the weekend. We plan to re-open with the Practice Slope on Friday. Please stay tuned for updates and THINK SNOW!” – Mad River Glenn, today
Mad River also plans to open a bit of terrain on Friday.
It’s been a tough ski season so far this year in the east.
