Opening day where?
Last year, yeah it was November, but then many were closed for much of December until Christmas. What a bummer. Kinda made up for it with March, though.
I always plan on riding somewhere over Thanksgiving weekend. The last few years we've been pretty fortunate and have had local hills open by then.
November 29 certainly seems reasonable, and remember, Tyler can cover Hawk Island in like, 2 nights of snowmaking.
