Default will Tahoe resorts reopen for big snow in May / June?

does this happen? Everything is closing in the next two weeks but I am just wondering if there are some massive snowstorms in Mid-may / early june do tahoe resorts ever open up even for just a day or two?

first year board here and having trouble coming to terms with the season already being close to over

Short answer is "No." Tahoe is warm...it's actually a much bigger summer resort than a ski resort. I'm friends with a former Marketing Director at Homewood...she told me how they'd have to close in mid April while they still had a 10' base, not because of conditions, but because people just didn't come to the mountain anymore. They're getting their boats in the water, they're opening up the summer homes. Not to mention the employees...the seasonal workers make plans, they move on. At some point, you just have to say "It's over."

That said...new snow this week in Vermont...Jay Peak is 100% open. They're pushing for another week. Stowe still has lots of snow, but because of the employee issue, they shut down Spruce Peak and the gondola, but you can still access the main face of Mt. Mansfield via the quad. But they're more focused now on opening up the golf courses and mountain bike trails.

The thing about mammoth is that it's closing Canyon and Eagle Lodge this weekend. I wanted to go one more time today, I have two free passes and it snowed a little this week, so there is 6-10" of freshies on the sides.
