Sooo

Let's play a game in which we get lucky and resorts are able to blow snow in November and we have some ski areas open up Thanksgiving weekend.

We're looking at 37 days.

woot!

Holy Cow only 37 days until the possible first outing of the year. So stoked.

A few years ago MTH/PK/AV were open on November 17. I think that was 2009. Earliest opening I can remember. The bigger resorts would probably not open any earlier than Thanksgiving, no matter what the weather delivers.

I'll probably be riding there once a week or so, as long as they keep their park as good as it was last winter.

Man that would be great. I think PK kind of realized that they had a lack of snow and got creative to make up for it. This year's supposed to be a heavier snowfall but I don't even know if I want that Timbo jump line back. What they did to replace it IMO was far better.

Agreed. No need for a jump line in Timbo if they're running a quad jump line on Snowbird. 90% of riders don't hit those big tables anyways.
