Can't say I blame them. Skiing is very much a growing sport out West. And arguably growing too fast for some in terms of ability for infrastructure to keep up or preservation of the overall experience.

Not really true in the NE. Goes to mid April and usually closes for lack of people not snow. Will give you early November generally. Killington is open longer than most. Mammoth and Abasin and Hood? Doesn’t Hood close then reopen?it seems there are simply fewer available ski days in the NE and Mid-Atlantic due to a shorter season,
