Sadly, today’s weather forecasts across the country have come in about 45 degrees warmer than anticipated, and current conditions include straight hot rain, and vicious snow eating fog. Temperatures at most ski resorts are currently at 75 degrees F, and most ski areas are forecast to reach into the 90s by this afternoon. All that’s left are very small patches of snow.

Most ski areas in the United States have lost dozens of feet of snow during the overnight hours, and will be ceasing skiing operations effective immediately. Notable closures include Sugarbush, Stowe, Killington, Alta, Mount Baker, and all Tahoe resorts. See you next season. Summer came very early this year. You should have listented to KC and skied more this year!

At least there’s plenty of grass skiing to go around.

    Yup, raining hard in Lebanon right now, no snow in sight. Sigh. Looks like the ski season is over, time to tune up the lawn mower.
    Rumor has it Tuckerman Ravine is down to grass in most of the bowl.

    Sugarloaf is saying they’ll be open until May 15. Grass skiing I’m sure.

    Great post Greg…I guess someone took you post on facevalue, my local is shutting down it’s operation today. Ahhh…what good is snowmaking of McSkiing if they closed on the first weekend of April.

    Lucky I choose Loco instead of Local yesterday. A TR will follow at one point.
