This is not a late April Fools Day joke: the ski season has bounced back with Killington in Vermont getting up to 18 inches of snow!
Yup. Eighteen inches that has allowed The Beast to open up 31 trails. That’s quite a difference from the three trails it had open off the Superstar lift just a few days ago.
Killington has again fired up the K1 gondola to bring skiers and snowboarders back to the summit for some turns on powder and packed powder conditions. Killington is charging $49 for lift tickets.
Farther north in Vermont, Jay Peak is reporting up to a foot of fresh snow. That will allow Jay to add to the 19 trails it had open before the snow started.
Jay and Killington are the only Vermont areas still open. Sugarbush and Stowe called it a season on Easter.
In New Hampshire, Loon is still open with 23 trails; Wildcat will reopen Saturday.
In Maine, Sunday River and Sugarloaf still have their lifts turning.
The National Weather Service forecasts a chance of snow/rain through Thursday.
It looks like Friday and Saturday are the picks of the week for mostly sunny skies.
This will likely be your last chance to enjoy some good skiing and snowboarding.
