Last Day at Mad River – sniff sniff

3/27: After some fantastic powder skiing early in the week, spring has arrived. With last night’s rain and today’s warm temperatures, we have lost a great deal of snow on the mountain. Forecasts are calling for more unfavorable weather next week, so we have decided to close for the season after skiing tomorrow, Sunday, March 28th. Tomorrow we are expecting sunshine from mid-morning on and temperatures in the 50s, so we’re looking forward to one more great day of spring skiing and a great end-of-the-season celebration! Tomorrow the Single Chair will be open until 4:30 pm, we’ll have a BBQ at lunchtime and live music on the deck from 3-6 PM, plus all season passes will be honored! Tomorrow we’ll start off the day skiing on at least 24 of our 45 trails with variable spring conditions, primarily wet granular. If the snow sets up enough with tonight’s forecasted cold temperatures, hopefully we will be able to reopen most of the closed expert terrain for some great spring corn skiing!

I don’t think Rich and I have any plans for searching out more snow at Tuckerman’s or anything like that this year  – so it’s probably best to just start getting my bikes tuned up and dig out my paddling gear (well – not until the water warms up!!)
