Allthough WT was harder hit for base, that's not likely the problem...
On one hand I'm enraged at the early closing, on the other hand, I have been watching the web cams of both LIBERTY and WHITETAIL all week and there have been minimal people on the hill. I was at WHITETAIL on WED, and there were a few people around, but perhaps not enough for them to consider staying open? I'm gonna guess I saw maybe 30 people total on WED, but perhaps it's just a WAG.
I swear this happens every year, they close up shop with plenty o' base.
For my part, this is the best part of the season, catch some rays (not today perhaps), make some runs.
