Breckenridge only 8% open?!?!

I am leaving next Thursday to go on a 3 day boarding trip and kind of bummed out when I checked the website today and saw the mountain is only 8% open, with only 8 runs available. I figured that mountain would be at least 30% - 40% open by this time with all the snowmaking ability they have. How can only so little of this mountain be open at this time?

Praying that they can somehow increase that amount to about 30% in the coming week, they are getting a little bit of snow almost everyday for the next week. If not, looks like this is going to be a booze fest.

I normally do these trips in March, however, working for an accounting firm now with a Jan - April busy season, this is my only option.

Well you see having 50 degree temps and only 2 inches of snow in November doesn't exactly help the cause. There's snow coming in tonight through Monday.

Yeh, I understand hopefully the snow and lower temps will allow them to create snow and open up more terrain. I just couldn't believe only 8% was open. I live on the east coast and Vermont mountains seem to be pretty good right now.

another big thing is the fact that every bit of blown snow is going straight to the dew tour park, with only like 2 or 3 days till practice is suppose to start they are kinda in crunch time right now.

In the last 2 years I have learned one thing about the mountains. Meteorologists don't know shit about what's going to happen, even 3 hours from now. I Wake up every morning and go ride a few laps, if it's snowing(which hasn't really happened yet) I will stay out all day. Yesterday was really the first day that happened. I really fucking hope they are right on this storm, even though I work all weekend.....

Whatever you do, don't go off into the trees unless you know where your going or we get 3' of snow before you get here.

Yeh I figured that much, I don't know why they would have an event so early in the season. You think they would have better planning than that.

Really hope that they get hit by a storm this weekend and sets me up for next week, that would be awesome.

Sitting on my couch on peak 8 right now I can't see the condo's below me and the snow is coming down. You'll be fine.
