Default Ski Resort Season

Which resort in the US/Canada has the longest snow season?

From when to when?

Yea...Timberline @ Mt Hood probably...Palmer glacier is open more or less all spring/summer weather permitting...although they close it in the Fall for a month or two usually to do maintenance and other things on all the lifts before winter season starts. And as i understand it a lot of the terrain is closed off for the various Ski teams, etc during different times...

You can youtube videos of people up there...

Timberline isn't double black up on Palmer. It's only as steep as a west blue run on the glacier and unless you are practicing freestyle it gets pretty boring. My girlfriend and I just bought unlimited spring passes for $109 and they are good until May 31st, so if you plan ahead it isn't THAT expensive.

I'd guess Hood, but Mammoth has a pretty bitchin long season. Some seasons have started in Nov and went all the way until the 4th of July. Last season ended with Memorial Day. This season had a cock tease opener in October, but really opened Nov. 12. It's shaping up to be a nice long season. Heading in to March now we've got an 11-14 1/2 ' base and climbing!
