Vermont has experienced summer-like temperatures over the last week. We've been wearing shorts and t-shirts. The sun has shone brightly as well, and while this makes for lovely weather to recreate in, it hasn't been kind to the snow.

Some ski resorts have thrown in the towel for the season, while some others will call it quits this weekend. Some mention that bare spots can be encountered any time and walking may be required at the top and bottom of trails.

Others mention that only some of their lifts are running, and the terrain is not suitable for beginners at some resorts. Call or <link>check the ski conditions reports before you go.

If you want to get a few more turns, now is the time to do it!

Vermont ski resort closing dates known as of Friday morning: 

Mad River Glen, Magic Mountain, Bromley, Pico, Middlebury Snow Bowl and the Mt. Ellen side of Sugarbush have closed for the season.

Bolton Valley's last day is Saturday. 

Mt. Snow, Okemo, Stratton and Smuggs have set their last day for Sunday. 

The other resorts will see how things look over the next couple of days. 

It's winding down, folks!

I headed west recently — and of course I brought my skis! I skied during Vail's last five days of the ski season in late-April. Despite the calendar, it was winter. I bundled up and enjoyed some…

It's time for spring skiing!

Mother Nature is now into her familiar spring thaw - freeze - thaw cycle. Spring skiing means you now do not want to be the first on the lift in the morning. It's often best to wait for the sun and/or…
