chupacabraman 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.

BarrettDSP 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.

tomtom88 We don't get a respectable base in Colorado until mid November, as BA said, anything before that isn't worth it.

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

bakesale 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.

When does Vancouver/Colorado Season Begin

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