Who's going to be open first?

Well in the spirit of getting amped before the snow falls, What resort/mountain do you think is going to be open first?

Toronto to Quebec City and even some resorts in Northern USA that are in distance.

I have my money on St. Sauveur.. yah its small but they can make their own snow and have been since October 15th

I've got to find something else to do before the snow hits.. I'm going stircrazy...

I'm on the border of Ontario,Quebec&NY but we always seem to get more snow than the Toronto area.

Of course Tremblant,Sauveur,Orford,Bromont,Jay Peak being 2 hours away as opposed to 8 for most is a nice bonus. This year I'm supposed to go to Blue though.

at blue they have 50 more snow cannons and another pump that increased their water pumping capacity by about 10 per cent. Also some new tech that allows snowmaking at -2C instead of -6C so that will help some.

Somebody in another thread said MSLM was targeting Nov 30 but that seems optimistic to me.

St. Sauveur has one run open today too...

I may go and check it out on the weekend even though it's probably pretty brutal.

My money is on blue mountain or horseshoe valley... I better be able to get some time off this season to visit my gf in Collingwood so we can board together at blue... I see the hills everyday and they are somewhat white! I think it'll all go away this weekend though, supposed to get double digit temps in the mid teens boooo ��
