Calling all New England skiers and snowboarders: Wait!
Although most of us have been enjoying every second of the unusual- and somewhat inconsistent- temps that have reached into the mid to high 70’s over the past couple of weeks, there are a few people out there who might not be ready for the heat. Many of us are probably scratching our heads and thinking, “It’s not even April yet and Ski Mountains are shutting down for the season?” My advice: don’t close the door on skiing just yet; it might be a tad too soon to hang up those poles and jackets. According to some of the biggest Ski Mountains in New England, it may be spring, but winter isn’t over yet.
Sugarloaf, also known these days as the “King of Spring”, has been working day and night to keep their trails open as long as possible. With 19 trails on the list for today (17 groomed), the Loaf isn’t looking too bad heading into the weekend. For the past week, Sugarloaf has been doing as much snowmaking as possible, and their expert groomers are ready and waiting to go when the lifts stop at night. With heavy dusting throughout the morning today, and 3” of snow in the past week (in addition to the continued snowmaking), Sugarloaf expects to have great conditions on the mountain this weekend.
So before you hang up those poles and jackets for the season, be sure you’re not letting great conditions go to waste. Also, keep your eye out for great deals on tickets for the 24th Annual Bud Light Reggae Fest, happening April 12-15 at Sugarloaf. Cheers to the snow that’s left, and to those of us who are taking advantage of it!
