Will There Be a Last Chair? 2016-2017 Ski Season Resort Closing Dates

The trees budding all across the Front Range in Colorado and Utah, and water sprinklers feverishly spraying golf courses are signs that spring is on us and summer is near. To the dismay of skiers and riders alike, it’s time to say goodbye to the bittersweet 2016-2017 ski season.

This winter has been both good and bad for a lot of North American ski destinations in Canada and Utah. Lots of spring snowfall more than made up for the warmer key holiday weekends during the winter. However, the volatility of spring storms produced conditions ripe for avalanche danger, power and equipment failures, high winds and road hazards that caused for sudden closures despite the fresh powder.

It’s also been bittersweet due to the massive consolidation of ski resorts that has taken place this season. Within two weeks this April, the ski industry experienced the biggest changes in ownership in a century. With the Aspen/KSL group’s purchase of Intrawest and Mammoth resorts, and the sale of CNL Resorts (owners of Stevens Pass and Summit at Snoqualmie) to an equity partnership, nearly 30 resorts changed hands. Add that to Vail’s three recent acquisitions that include Stowe, the first East coast destination in its portfolio.

Whatever your feelings are about the ski industry’s consolidation of resorts or the volatile snow conditions this year, many ski resorts typically wrap their season up at the end of March. With the later snowstorms, a group of ski resorts are planning to close late April this year. Some – like Squaw Valley and Mammoth – still covered in white gold plan to stay open through the fourth of July, and there are rumors that both may consider staying open continuously through the summer straight into the next season.

In the future, last chair may be become a thing of a ski era gone by, but for now many ski resorts have been having some fun closing day celebrations everywhere! Search the table below to uncover the two or three resorts where you can still get your stoke on, as well as which ones have already spun their last chair.
