The calendar says May, but some ski resorts across New England still have enough snow to make it feel like it's still winter.

More than a half-dozen ski areas across the region plan to offer skiing to anyone who doesn't want to put away their skis and snowboards just yet.

Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine, Sugarbush, Jay Peak and Killington in Vermont, Wildcat in New Hampshire and Wachusett Mountain in Massachusetts all plan to offer lift-served skiing this weekend.

Wachusett Mountain in Princeton says this will be the first time they've offered May lift-served skiing ever. The ski resort plans to open its Vickery Bowl lift to intermediate and advanced skiers on Saturday. It warns only a portion of Hitchcock Trail will be open and some walking will be required.
