Wisp hints at and April 1 closing.
From the home page top story, you probably saw that I tried to assemble an exhaustive list of current mid-Atlantic resort status and plans. Not sure how long it will stay accurate, and I won't be able to update it every day, but it should be useful as a planning tool. I was surprised by how many resorts are still open. (And sad that Whitetail closed -- with tons of snow on the slopes. Sigh!)
It seems that the majority of resorts will be open through this weekend (although some are shutting down midweek due to decreased skier visits). Many have not commited to a closing date yet, so I think they're waiting to see what skier visits are like this weekend before deciding whether to go another week. Snow cover doesn't seem to be the issue; there's plenty of snow to go around. Quite a few plan to make it until April 1, and it's somewhat amazing that Seven Springs was even making snow Sunday night. I can't recall a ski area making snow that late in the season. Kudos to them.
With the late-season storm providing great conditions for late March, I'm afraid this year will definitively prove our theory that resorts close due to decreased skier visits and not lack of snow cover. Whitetail is a perfect example of that. But we'll see how many visitors resorts tally up over the next week or two.
