  1. For western resorts, the vast majority of closing dates are pre-determined (usually before the season begins) by amount of skier visits. Many (over half?) close regardless of amount of snow remaining.
    Many could stay open into mid-summer on most years.

    For the eastern resorts it is generally the opposite. They are far busier (relative to size) and therefore the vast majority operate until the snow is completely gone.

    1. Most ski resorts are restricted by their forest service contract how long they can operate.

  2. Winter Park/Mary Jane will be open As long as possible…. The website has been updated. Looks like at least memorial day weekend
