JAY, Vt. (AP) — Many of Vermont’s smaller ski and snowboard areas have closed for the season, but some are still going strong after heavy snowfall this winter.

Jay Peak Resort, which says it received the most snow of any resort in the continental United States, is planning to stay open seven days a week until April 26. After that, it plans to reopen for skiing and riding May 2-3, and possibly the weekend after that, too.

Killington Resort, which has supplemented its nearly 200 inches of natural snow with snowmaking, has snowpack of up to 30 feet. That’s enough to plan to keep the mountain open for skiing and riding until June.

Statewide, Vermont resorts have seen an average of about 240 inches of snow this season.
