So what are the chances of celebrating my birthday, June 14, on the slopes at the Basin this year? Any hope?

June 14....HMMMMMMMMM. It is too early to call. We are scheduled to close June 5. If there is still plenty of snow after that and people are still skiing....maybe.

What is the latest closing date of the basin in their history?

August 10, 1995. We were skiing Lenawee Face and Humbug at the end. That was back in the days of old Lenawee Lift with a mid-station where the Humbug avalauncher tower is. People had to walk downhill to the top of Exo Lift to download.

Ah...come on Al. It will be my 40th. It's a banner year for snow in these days of global warming. It may be the last chance for a while! Let's go for it! Anyone else in favor?

The first time I stepped into skis was at A-Basin, in 1973 at age 15. Living on the east coast since 1974, I "ski" your incredible snow everyday through your webcams. That's as close as I've gotten to returning. My wife and I hope to be out there in the next couple of seasons. It certainly looks like we missed a good one! See you soon!
