Actually, most ski resorts in the west are on United States Forest Service land. The lease they sign with the USFS requires closure by a certain date. Animal migration is one of the reasons, but there are many others.
Lower slopes low snow conditions. Higher up plenty of snow for spring conditions. Bought epic pass skied 36 days equals $21.33 per day. Window price is always bad. Skied whistler in rain this year and found grass spots and rocks in aspen. All skiing good some just bett
