I get that, but why? Do they traditionally lack the snow or is it the demand? Always seems crazy to me how the resorts struggle to get open and then close when there's plenty of snow.
I've closed out TSV many seasons in the past. It is like a ghost town once the Texas spring break is over.

OK, those are your skis, but where are Mamies?
Dude, we are trying make the best of a abbreviated season. Didn't started with the normal load of 13 skis. Skimmed on the fat ones since we started at the end of Feb.
Anyway, Mamie is a Stöckli girl but I am not a Stöckli guy. So you can figure where the split is.

PSA: Get your shot(s) and c'mon out to Squaw and Mammoth in May. Still plenty of skiing to be had.

I've got my shots, but I have this work thing I have to do for a few more years. I will be skiing at Killington several more weekends into May though, got my spring pass. Not sure the snow will last until Memorial Day though.

I imagine that there's plenty of snow to stay open for weeks longer. Why does TSV shut down so early?

People stop coming. There have been years where they stayed open longer due to a huge snowpack, but the only customers are a few die-hard pass holders. No income to speak of for TSV or the vendors. Same at Ski Santa Fe. People go instead to the desert, rivers, etc. Bikes and golf clubs.
