Default When does Vancouver/Colorado Season Begin

I'm looking at a trip this Fall. When do the seasons start for Vancouver and Colorado?

~Thanks

Don't expect anything before January for Vancouver.

Whistler opens American Thanksgiving weekend, but don't expect much to be open, maybe a third of Whistler and 1/4th of Blackcomb will be open, no terrain parks.
The North Shore hills will open usually two weeks after Whistler but the same thing applies, don't expect a lot of terrain or coverage.

Like illegal said, don't expect much from Vancouver until January or late Dec, it's still ridable but it's not worth a trip.

Tentative opening day for Colorado is early to mid October, but not worth it.

We don't get a respectable base in Colorado until mid November, as BA said, anything before that isn't worth it.

I'm working on a trip to Steamboat for Dec14-18. I've never been this early in the season. Would I be able to expect decent conditions this early in the season. From what I've read online it does seem Steamboat has a good history of having a good early season.

Not Vancouver or Colorado but a couple other early openings...

- Sunshine Village opens Nov.7-11 and is usually 100% open by Nov.20ish
- Lake Louise opens the same time, but with limited runs and not much snow.
- Mt.Baker is pretty variable and could open anywhere between late October and late December... probably early November though as well.
