Arapahoe Basin, CO closed for the season yesterday.  As of today, there’s only one ski resort open in North America, but soon there will be two…

Whistler Blackcomb will be opening up for summer glacier skiing on June 20th.  They’ll stay open until July 26rd.

It’s too bad that Beartooth Basin, summer-only ski resort, will not be open this summer.

Rumors are flying that Timberline Lodge ski resort, the only one open in North America right now, may not make it all the way until September this year due to a lack of snow coverage.  We’ll see how this progresses.  We imagine they’ll at least make it until the end of July.

Ah, Springtime…  Park, pipe, shorts, bikinis, hot tubs, hot springs, ice cream, beer, beer guts, sunglasses, stinky sunscreen, hot dogs, ball caps, sunburns, costumes, and deep powder.

One thought on “Only 1 Ski Resort STILL OPEN in North America:

  1. Mt. Hood’s 2014-15 total snowfall was essentially the same as in 2004-05, and more than half of it came in the late season in 2004-05 compared to about one third of it this year. Timberline’s lift service shut down in mid-August then. That picture tells me more than any stat analysis though. Timberline will be lucky to keep Palmer open to the end of July.
