Although the Steady Brook area of Newfoundland's west coast still has a significant amount of snow on the ground, Marble Mountain has closed its doors for the season.

General manager Chris Beckett said there is not enough people around to sustain keeping the ski resort open. 

"People tend to get tired of winter I think," Beckett said.

"People just start to switch off skiing and snowboarding and get into different modes, and that's what causes people to change direction and causes us to not be able to keep the mountain open as long as we have snow."  

Beckett said other ski resorts across the country run into the same issue. Many have already closed for the season.

Marble Mountain opened on the first weekend of January.
