From the PostStar Online Addition: "there is still plenty of snow on the trails despite temperatures approaching 50 degrees Sunday, April 4, 2011. Manager Mike Pratt said Gore Mountain will be open on weekends through Easter."
Kids in most NJ school districts (as in most) have spring recess week before Easter. We planned to ski weekend of April 16, 17 and visit Nation's Capital at the end of the week. It looks like there a good chance will not be much to do in Washington, so skiing on Easter weekend would be really welcomed.
Amen. We've basically abandoned even our humble "Chreaster" leanings. Last year we headed up for the sunrise service and then a run down the WROD and waffle breakfast in the lodge. It was a nice way to spend Easter morning as a family and was hoping to make it a new tradition. Looks like we'll pull it off again this year, though I was doubtful with the holiday coming so late!
We skied on Easter weekend last year, but Easter comes 3 weeks later this year. The late season snowpack this year is amazing, with the woods still skiing great as of last weekend. But is it enough to last until the weekend of April 22-24, on par with Gore's latest ever? WF is already calling April 15-17 "one last weekend," and I don't ever remember a season where Gore stayed open later than WF. The Post Star made Easter weekend sound like a real possibility, and I haven't heard Gore back off that possibility yet, but personally, I don't think Gore will make it to Easter. I don't think this forum supports polls, so maybe just chime in below as to whether or not you think Gore will make it to the weekend of April 22-24?
