NEW ENGLAND SKI AREAS COUNCIL REPORTS ON SPRING CONDITIONS

 NEW ENGLAND SKI AREAS COUNCIL REPORTS ON SPRING CONDITIONS
 WOODSTOCK, Vt., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Skiers have more ski areas and skiable terrain to choose from this week than in several previous ski seasons, according to the New England Ski Areas Council.
 As of Monday, April 13, there were winter-like conditions in ski country with 29 ski areas, one in Massachusetts and 19 in Northern New England, offering 696 slopes and trails for skiers.
 "This is one of the best spring seasons we've seen in some years," reports Phil Camp, executive director of the New England Ski Areas Council, the non-profit trade association to which all ski areas in New England belong.
 Camp indicates that more natural snowfall than in previous years, plus extensive snowmaking activity has piled up snow on trails from, "a foot to six feet deep. "I know it's hard to believe these figures," he relates, "because in most people's backyards and along the roads leading to ski areas there's no evidence of remaining snow. Yet, as you drive into the parking lot at these 20 ski areas, your whole perspective changes."
 Resort operators report uncrowded slopes, in spite of abundant snow. "Most skiers don't think skiing this late in the year," according to Chip Carey, marketing director at Sugarloaf, Maine, "yet right now we have some of the best conditions we've had all year."
 Several areas hope to operate through April, some well into May and beyond. Most received between a half and a foot of fresh snow in the past three days, adding to their deep base depths.
 Areas offering skiing this week include Jiminy Peak in Massachusetts, Sugarloaf and Sunday River in Maine, plus Wildcat, Attitash, Cannon, Loon and Waterville Valley in New Hampshire.
 In Vermont, Jay Peak, Burke, Smuggler's Notch, Stowe, Bolton Valley, Mad River Glen, Sugarbush, Killington, Pico, Okemo, Stratton and Mt. Snow offer plenty of skiing, many for all levels of ability.
 To help prove to doubting-Thomases that there's plenty of snow left, Jiminy Peak offered free skiing Monday, today while Burke will offer it this Wednesday and Friday. Sunday River does so Wednesday as well.
