Vail Resorts and Intrawest would be crazy to close everything next weekend. Steamboat and many others already closed this weekend. But, beyond the slush at the bottom: there’s plenty of snow! We were at Keystone this weekend and I was still finding fluffy powder in the trees. Vail has tons of powder still, too. Please, please don’t close quite yet!
One reply on “They should keep the slopes open.”
Unfortunately, this boils down to numbers and what the Forest Service contract says. Even with good snow, people want to be out biking, hiking, etc when the temps start to creep up. It’s sad the ski season is closing out, but my trip up to the mountains this past weekend was awesome. No traffic — on the roads or on the mountain! 🙂
