Why would they not remain open for as long as these conditions last. It would help make up for some very bad snow conditions in past years.

I hear the OFSC trails have closed but that's different. They get all there money at the beginning of the season and staying open would cost them more for grooming.
Their customers do not get a longer bang for their buck season just because winter held on for so much longer.

Hoping all the skiers are enthusiastic and having fun.

As a young man I worked a few winters at the hill... Those days we took a snow machine to the top of the double chair and we were driving threw mud.

The mud would usually shut us down before this time of the year... So enjoy.

Enjoy the snow and wear your helmut.
