It's snowing pretty good right now on the upper mountain of the Bush. I am optimistically assuming it's snowing up at Jay and maybe kmart. If they are both willing to stay open no matter how many retail guests show up, which one will give up first? Will Jay give waterpark/hotel/Ice Hauss customers a voucher for free skiing or perhaps the other way around?

Update: WCAX just reported that kmart will be open "thru the end of April" with the 7-10" of snow they got today. That's a pretty bold statement being just the 9th of April. Maybe I misheard it. The "king of spring" comp is getting interesting. Wonder what Tucks got from this storm?

There's a picture on t4t of what is called a blowout in the Ravine. A part of the slope near Lunch Rocks has collapsed and washed away. There was speculation that perhaps an ice dam had built up under the snow and then blew out, causing the mess. I've been in the Ravine many times over the years (but not in recent years, unfortunately) and I've never seen anything like this.
The above event took place some time ago. I don't know when. The above description isn't clear that it didn't just happen and perhaps this fixes that.

Why wonder? If you are going there, you should read the entire advisory carefully.
Mount Washington Avalanche Center
Mount Washington Weather Ravine Cams

Summary: Accumulated 2 ft since the weekend.
"Tuckerman Ravine has MODERATE avalanche danger. Natural avalanches are unlikely and human triggered avalanches are possible.
It may be moved to CONSIDERABLE if more snow falls.

Crevasses, undermined snow, and waterfall holes continue to be a serious threat. Currently the area from the Sluice to the Center Bowl is littered with crevasses. Most of these are covered with a thin coating of newer snow, which makes them nearly impossible to safely assess their exact location, size and depth. The hazards presented by the crevasses are not to be taken lightly; it is truly “no-fall” terrain."


Of course you probably all heard about the death last week.
On April 4th, Norman Priebatsch, 67 slipped, fell and slid into a deep crevasse in Tuckerman’s. The crevasse is located between an area known as the Lunch Rocks and the Lip. Last I heard the body still has not been located.

It's a leftover from early threads, indicating which ski areas made snow in late March.

Sugarloaf has officially thrown in the towel, per their Daily Report. Apr. 16 was their last day.

Historically crappy winter. Let's hope it was, anyway.

Updated my blog post with the latest.

Saturday update:

Killington has announced that Sunday April 22 will be their last day of the season.

Ran in the forecast where the three remaining ski areas.

Mt St-Sauveur was closed today with the rain, will open sunday is the forecast is better: 2 runs / $20. Open only on weekends.

Jay Peak is only running the Triple. 3 runs / $35. Will be evaluating re-opening the weekend sometimes midweek..

Killington is at 5 runs / $49. Last day on April 22.

Considering the difficult season we had, Killington hung in quite well. I hate to say it, but the days of skiing into May or June are probably gone. I would guess that the money lost doing that is better spent for the early season or regulars season expenses.
