east coast yeah I'd say first week of december. here in Michigan many of the resorts target a Thanksgiving weekend opener. They can usually do that with a few runs open. The smaller hills often beat the larger resorts by a few days.

I think the earliest I've ridden is November 17 but I recall a few years when we didn't have open slopes until mid-December.

Where I'm riding this year:

Pine Knob - 14
Mt. Holly - 3
Treetops - 2
A-Basin - 2
Mt. Bohemia - 3
Mt. Brighton - 1
Caberfae - 2
Crystal Mountain - 1
