It is a shame really, with a deep late season snow pack Stowe Mountain Resort will be closing it’s doors on Sunday April 17, 2011.  It’s understandable especially with this week’s rain and warm temps, many people down South are thinking golf and bikes.  Though as a skier it’s always tough to see a mountain full of snow shut down, but it just means more skinning, road trips to other resorts for late season turns, and obviously The Prezi’s.  After all, we are getting a new Quad for next season (p.s. they will be blasting on the Quad side pretty soon after the mountain closes).

So there is only one more thing to do, head up to the mountain for your last lift served runs and make sure you don’t miss Sunday.  Silly outfits are required as well as tailgating, and we heard through the grapevine that those not in outfit may be snowballed at the top of the quad…
