Don't get your hopes up... Compare to last year (approximately Mt. Holly/Flint):

History : Weather Underground

In retrospect I find it hard to believe they were able to open last year on 11/27. Those daytime highs are still awfully high in the 40s, but there were only 6 days prior to Black Friday with above-freezing overnight lows, and most of those were still in the 30s. This year we have overnight lows in the 40s and 50s. The ground isn't even close to freezing.

Where I'm riding this year:

Pine Knob - 13
Mt. Holly - 2
Treetops - 2
A-Basin - 2
Mt. Bohemia - 3
Mt. Brighton - 1
Caberfae - 2
Crystal Mountain - 1
