  1. I’ve skied at Jackson since ’74; they have always closed the first weekend of April. It’s a great time of the year to ski (long days, warm, plenty of snow), but the lifts are only running for the passholders after the 3rd week of March. This is not isolated mountain management. The only areas that remain open to daily ticket traffic are within a few hours of metro areas or airports (Reno, SLC, Denver), or low overhead operations with one, long lift (Targhee, A-Basin). Since running lifts and managing the terrain requires money to stay in business, those businesses close – for your “corp’d” benefit the next ski season. Once it becomes springtime, grab your surfboard, golf clubs, mountain bike, and hit the road. If you want to ski, then hike for it – there are thousands of acres of excellent terrain available for months.

    1. It’s cool if they stay open to passholders only for the last week or two, but doesn’t that make the lack of income a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy?

  2. So you’re implying that Jackson used to close later? When was that? How much later? Seems to me that they’ve always closed early, and getting “all corp’d out” has nothing to do with it.

    1. Mom and Pop ski resorts and Corporate ones alike prefer not to spin the lifts at a loss. There are no more skiers that visit, people move on to spring/summer activities. I ski until June if Snowbird lets me, but they are in a unique position as the only game in town and next to a metro area full of ravenous skiers. It’s not some conspiracy why ski areas close early.

      1. Does that mean that Jackson Hole is actually uncrowded this time of year? (Serious question.)

        Certainly my local resorts are in a somewhat different situation, but they seem to manage to stay open well into summer (when conditions allow) despite having vastly fewer skiers visiting even by mid-April. I have no doubt staffing is a problem, but it’s clearly possible.
