Grouse Mountain at Vancouver in British Columbia has announced they have so much snow they expect to keep open until the Canada Day long weekend. They currently have a six metre (20 foot) base and have been experiencing light snowfalls in recent days.
Skiing and boarding there is however temporarily shutting down from May 17 to May 27 for some previously scheduled annual maintenance and the resort's summer attractions open this weekend on May 20. Skiing and boarding will resume at weekends from May 28 from 9.30am to 5.30pm using the Screaming Eagle Chair to access several trails.
South of the border Alpine Meadows at Lake Tahoe closed its ski and snowboard operations after a long season last Sunday but has announced it will re-open for the US Independence Day holiday on July 4th.
It joins Mammoth Mountain to the south which plans to stay open daily until then anyway, Crystal Mountain in Washington State which plans to open weekends until then, and Timberline in Oregon which is normally open year round apart from a maintenance closure for a few weeks each September. Sunshine in Canada has also said it may re-open for Canada Day.
In another season extension, if not yet quite to July, Arapahoe-Basin in Colorado has announced it will open two weekends after its previously planned closing date on June 5th. It will now be open seven days a week through to June 5th and then will reopen for summer skiing for at least two three-day weekends - June 10-12 and June 17-19.
Other North American areas still open at present include Donner and Squaw Valley in California, Snowbird in Utah and Mr Bachelor in Oregon. In Canada it's the last weekend of the season coming up at Sunshine, Banff and they're still skiing and boarding at Whistler Blackcomb.
