It’s that time of year again; when you tell your family and friends you’re going skiing, only to have them look at you as if you just grew a snow snake out of your neck.
A season that started as a dud has transformed into one of the better springs for skiing in the East over the past few seasons.
Yes, Jay Peak and Sugarloaf will likely extend their seasons into May; June remains on the table for Killington, considering the healthy state of the Superstar glacier. That didn’t seem likely in mid-February, when it seemed East Coasters were doomed for another lackluster snow season.
Then, the snow started to fall. Consistently. As Basecamp podcast host Mike Specian put it, “It was a heavy sigh of relief to the ski industry….It was better than a sigh of relief.”
