As fo I! Current mgmnt is a looong way from the old Alex Cushing days... though i do recall yrs ago when the mtn opened a couple of long July 4 weekends back in the day. Even still have the I skied July 4 t shirts.... somewhere.Really impressed with the management of SV/AM to leg this out into May with a super-subpar snow year. The Sierra snowpack is at 25% of normal right now, by some estimates. Just crazy to still spin the lifts, particularly with retail/lodging/food/booze receipts so down.
So does this management trend mean that we can pretty much count on skiing through Memorial Day going forward for every normal year (let alone above-normal)? That'd be great news if so.
I don't know if it's because management is "committed to the skier" or they need all the community goodwill to build the waterpark or, as one wag on a chairlift told me, "you can't print all those Spring Skiing Capital T-shirts and then close in March" or what it is, but I like it. I LIKE IT.
KT & Headwall not making it to the weekend.
KT was rumored to be done earlier in the week itself. So they got a few more days in over the whisper numbers.
