Boyne Highlands is closed. Nubs is officially closing this Sunday 4/10. Crystal Mountain closed last Sunday; although The North Face back side will hold rideable snow for a few more weeks, unfortunately there is no parking nearby but it could potentially be poached if you wanted to hike a little bit.

Boyne Mountain is "open daily through 4/10" but... I heard rumors a few weeks ago that because of all the snow this year they might re-open on weekends-only later in the month. There is some ski/golf combination outing on 4/16 but I am not sure if the hill will be open to the public or if it is just for people who sign up for the event.
