    What mountains are still open?

    This weekend is JWF as I gotta go to my brother's wedding. But what, nation wide, is still open across the country?

    What's open through October?

    Daddy needs some more fat ****er DH time!

    Plattekill (11/5), Highland (11/17)

    October bailouts: Snowshoe (10/7), Sugarbush (10/7), Jiminy Peak (10/14), Mountain Creek (10/28)


    Last year a cold, snowy winter was forecast, and it didnt deliver - Plattekill stayed open into December; While I would like some snow to play in, Im not counting on it.

    Mount Snow is open until 10/7. I know everyone sh!ts on Mt Snow, but if you haven't been in a few years, it's well worth it. A lot of trail work, a few new trails including a jump trail and a beginner trail similar to happy hour at Highland but about 10 times longer, and the race trails are open to ride. They've really done good things up there.

    Whistler is open through Oct. 8 but just until 5 pm; Garbanzo access shortened an hour either end (11-4).

    Silver Mountain (ID) closing weekend Oct. 6-7.

    Stevens Pass (WA) Sats & Suns 10-6; still open, haven't announced a closing yet. Check ahead.

    Anyone know the closing dates for Mammoth and Angelfire?

    I guess I could google that, but that'd involve work.

    Adding to the Whistler mention, it's still super hot here (sun burn and midges hot). I rode the Peak Zone in my tshirt last week, whereas last year there was a foot of snow by now. Mountain is still super dusty.

    Good thread. Apparently everything is still open. I guess some Peruvian dudes could chime in or whatever.

    Whistler is as dusty and blow out as I have ever seen it. Good times to be had for 2 last weekends.

    Big Bear and Mt. Baldy are still open. Mammoth is either already closed, or closes this weekend.
