Yeah, sucks now, but get it right and you won't wind up 50 years old and driving a truck! Going broke paying for those 50-60 day seasons! get a degree, Get a good job, Make lots of money, and shred the best resorts until your waaaay past 50!

Does anyone have any information on opening day plans for various resorts this year? Particularly, I'm curious about Crystal and Caberfae. Dave, anyone, do you know anything on their plans barring any unusual weather?

Seems most of the up-north resorts target Thanksgiving weekend, Friday I think, as their opener. Obviously weather permitting. Some years it works out, some it doesn't. I don't think they ever open earlier than that, just too far away from major population centers to get enough demand to justify an earlier opening.

The local hills around here typically set the same target of Thanksgiving weekend, but they've been known to open earlier weather permitting. They are able to do this because they're much closer to large population of skiers/snowboarders, and also it only takes 3-4 days of good snowmaking weather for them to cover enough terrain to open.

Since I started keeping track, I think the earliest I've ridden was November 17 at Alpine Valley.

Cool. Since Thanksgiving is late this year, that also improves the chances they'll be open for that weekend.

I imagine Hawk Island will do their damnedest to be the first open...

Everything I hear from Hawk says "early December" but perhaps they're just hedging their bets. If it's cold enough, they can certainly open as quickly as anyone else.
