A few Midwestern ski areas had been able to stay open into April on weekends and a couple of times in the last few years into May. This season I can find only five and possibly six that plan on staying open through at least the first weekend of April.

At this point Ski Brule in Michigan's UP appears to be open the longest. They are offering an $80 lift and lodging special in their Pioneer Lodge April 12-14. Spring skiing should be great On Saturday April 7 they are offering.$80 Carload Day Lift Ticket. Pay $80 and everyone in your car will get a lift ticket for a day of skiing and boarding.

Surprisingly the last day of skiing at Lutsen Mountains will be April 7. For years have stayed open on weekends through April and the first weekend of May. No explanation just saying they will close after skiing that Sunday. They only received 35-inches of natural snowfall this winter. They are offering a season ending special two nights lodging and two day lift-tickets from $149 per person April 4-7.

Through Boyne Mountain's closing day, April 7, any nearby skier with a season pass from any other resort in Michigan can spend the day skiing the Mountain for just $20.They are calling it Mitten Love, the shape of the Lower Peninsula.

Granite Peak plans to reopen April 5-6 for one last weekend of skiing in the Badger State.

Giants Ridge also plans to reopen April 4-7 when lift tickets will be $41.

Snowriver Mountain Resort would like to open Saturday, April 6, for one last big hurrah for the winter, but they need to know that people would attend. They've set a goal: sell a minimum of 150 tickets to solidify a reopening of Jackson Creek Summit. Could be the biggest party of the year in Midwest snow country. Better get on board quickly.
