    Looks like its just the Park, with "maybe" a chair lift running.

    Impressive nonetheless. Poconos, skiing/ridding, on snow, in May. Yeah, its been a cold spring....

    Yes, just Big Boulder Park.  Facebook chat fwiw indicates that a chairlift will be running at Big Boulder on Saturday May 5.

    Consistent as Mothers’ Day Skiing (again) – Eastern Closing Thread 2018 – Week 7


    Here is this week's post. As mentioned above, Jay was hoping to add an extra weekend, but Mother Nature had other plans for Mothers' Day at Jay Peak.

    So again this season, it comes down to St-Sauveur and Killington. MSS decided to open tomorrow Friday.

    MSS is planning on being opened until 5/21 according to their website. I guess Killington will go longer.

    We still have a few options in the East, even if you want to ride a chairlift.

    Ski Mag online had a list of open areas and said that the lasst day for Killington is May 28 (Memorial Day). I don't know if their source is semi-official or if like the TraceSnow app: June turns count for the 2018-9 season.

    From experience, I don't find these websites accurate. I find sites like onsnow, etc  generally give approximate dates. I never base any of my info on them.
