Ski season is over…except for Tuckermans

It’s sad, but unfortunately Killington is closing today. I can’t keep denying that it’s not yet spring, although spring skiing this year was epic, even though the resorts didn’t have enough employees left to operate all their lifts. This spring is especially depressing because of the bleak outlook for next year. The ASC resorts have been broken up and sold, because ASC seems to care only about The Canyons. Hopefully now that the resorts are in competition, they will have good deals, discounts, and cheap season passes, but given the lift ticket prices at places like Stowe, maybe that’s wishful thinking. I may be skiing Mad River Glen a lot next year, because I can get a college pass for ~$200.

Luckily I still have a couple of runs to be skied at Tuckerman’s Ravine on Mt. Washington…although the ~20 minutes of skiing requires 6 hours of hiking. I will be there next weekend, weather permitting.
