If you still haven't got your fill of skiing this season, this is your last weekend to hit the slopes in Vermont. Ski Vermont reports that these areas remain open:
• Jay Peak - Open Sat & Sunday, 4/26 - 4/27 for intermediate and advanced skiers
• Mount Snow - Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 4/25 - 4/27
• Sugarbush - Open through Sunday, 4/27
Check for links to their springy snow reports and driving directions on the <link internal-link internal link in current>Vermont Ski Resorts and Snow Conditions page.
In my inbox this morning, I found a Jay Peak communiqué with more detail:
"The Jet Triple will turn accessing up to 10 trails including the Jet, Haynes, Montréaler, etc. We'll have a BBQ at the base of the Jet with a picnic area set up and the retail shop in the Stateside Lodge will be open for ticket sales. Ticket pricing for the weekend will be $25 for a 2-day ticket (valid Saturday & Sunday). Sunday only tickets will also be available for $25."
Sounds like a party, and the weather appears that it will cooperate, as well. The previously forecasted rain will now hit northern Vermont on late Sunday and Monday.
My sister out in Colorado told me that Vail turned off their lifts on April 13. They, too, had a great season, but now hard-core skiers must hike for their turns on the deep snowpack.
