I figured it might be good to crowdsource the 2022 season ending dates for Mid-Atlantic resorts, capturing closing dates in this thread.

I'll kick things off.  The Omni Homestead Resort in Virginia announced that its last day for the 2021-2022 ski season will be Sunday, March 6.  (Of course, the Homestead has a ton of non-ski activities throughout the year -- this only affects snow sports.)

Tom Price, Director of Operations at Timberline Mountain, just announced that Timberline hopes to remain open through  the 20 March—maybe even longer if weather permits:

Massanutten has online tickets available through March 20.  Based on what I skied today, I think the core trails have enough base to make it.  But the trail count is going to decrease by next weekend.

 Any guesses on what will still be open next weekend?

 Easier to guess what won't make it.  Lower MakAttack, Geronimo aka Easy Street, and Meadow are unlikely to make it.  Between the high temps and rain in the next few days, there won't be any way to even get a groomer on top of the snow that's left without sinking in mud.

Snowmaking started a lot earlier on Paradice than recent years, so I expect that may last until the end.  Mass Transit doesn't get much sun so might even be able to keep Yee Ha open.  There are a couple big features in the Lower Mass Transit terrain park that could be used to keep Lower Showtime open.

It looks like Liberty, Roundtop, and Whitetail are planning on ending their season 20 March.

If anyone has an Epic pass and wants to drive north or fly somewhere in April . . .

https://www.snowindustrynews.com/articles/2022/march/vail-resorts-extends-202122-winter-season-at-seven-resorts/

Planned season extensions (as snow conditions and weather permit), include: 

  • Vail Mountain: Open until May 1 (previously April 24)
  • Kirkwood: Open until May 1 (previously April 10)
  • Heavenly: Open until April 24 (previously April 17)
  • Stevens Pass: Open until May 1 (previously April 17)
  • Hunter: Open until April 10 (previously April 3) 
  • Mount Snow: Carinthia open until April 24 (previously April 17)
  •  Boston Mills: Open until March 20 (previously March 13) 

In addition to these season extensions, Vail Resorts is pleased to offer skiing and riding well into May at Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia (scheduled to stay open until May 23) and Breckenridge in Colorado (scheduled to stay open through Memorial Day, May 30). While pass holders and all guests will have more time on the mountains, they should be aware that due to late spring conditions, open terrain may be reduced.

Canaan Valley Resort's last day of the season will be Sunday, March 13, 2022.  For their last day they have 13 trails open and a nice coating of snow from yesterday's storm.

Saw on the Snowshoe website that Silver Creek closes on March 20.  Snowshoe Basin stays open until March 27.

The NC ski areas still open made snow this weekend: Sugar, Beech, Appalachian, Cataloochee.  Massanutten was the only VA ski resort staying open past March 13.  They made snow last night once the wind died down a bit.  Guns still on in the morning.

Did anybody go to Whitetail or Liberty today, and if so what were the conditions like? I'm wondering about going tomorrow and it's hard to tell from their websites. Certain web cams are not updated and I know from my trip to Liberty last week that their list of which trails are open is inaccurate.

 Perhaps Bryce has changed its mind.  As of now (920 a.m. on Tuesday March 15) Bryce’s website reports 7/9 trails open. 1647350898_ckrzscvofqsg.jpg

However, Bryce’s Facebook page includes several posts that indicate March 13 (this past Sunday) as their last day.

🤔

Bryce is done for the season for sure. Ski patrol took back all the signs and fences at the close of Sunday. Employees had a season closing party right after. The website sometimes doesn't get updated.

Good Morning today at Whitetail, Angel, Snowpark, Stalker, Bold Decision and Exhibition are open. Stalker is dicey and will close soon, Exhibition might stay open if they can find some snow to move around. Park had 7 decent features a medium jump and a small jump. Get your last day in soon!!! It was ~70 deg when I left. Rain will play havoc tonight/tomorrow. Glad I chose today.
Might have been 20 cars in the lot when I left at noon after 15 runs in 2:30.

 Found a schedule for March 21-27 on the Wisp website.  It's under Hours of Operation.  The plan is 9am-5pm all week.  Whether or not it's worth the drive is a different question.

From the Wisp websites:

"Today, Sunday, March 20, is the last day of ski and snowboarding operations for the 2021-22 winter season. Thanks for a great season everyone!"

Snowshoe will have trails in the main Basin area open for another week.  Closing on March 27.

In NC Beech, Sugar, and Cataloochee plan to have slopes stay open for about a week past March 20. Sat, March 26 might end up the last day in NC.
