Killington, VT May 2001

April 2001--Common thought may dictate that the ski season begins in November, when only a few man-made runs exist, and ends before Cinco de Mayo, when ski areas boast plenty of snow coverage, but that doesn't mean you should buy into this beach-bound hype. Of course, the Southern Hemisphere's winter will start up soon if you can make the trip to follow the endless winter. If not, check out these ski areas for some late-season lift-serviced skiing.

All dates are subject to change with weather conditions so check with the area before you go.

If you know of any Northern Hemisphere ski areas still open this spring and summer please email us at editor@skinet.com. Send photos of your late-spring and summer skiing adventures. We would love to see them and may even publish them on SkiNet.
