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...

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!

Every turn is a blessing.
