I need to find this snow, it snowed a little where I live yesterday, mostly all on the mountains so i'm not arguing but, we are still a long ways from enough haha. It's just cold.

ThunderChunky Mid November west, early December east.

c0r3y.af You'll get a few that open in November but for the most part it seems like the beginning of December is when the majority of the resorts open. Obviously it depends on snowfall and temperature but that seems to be a reliable date to look forward to.

david_z east coast yeah I'd say first week of december. here in Michigan many of the resorts target a Thanksgiving weekend opener. They can usually do that with a few runs open. The smaller hills often beat the larger resorts by a few days.

I think the earliest I've ridden is November 17 but I recall a few years when we didn't have open slopes until mid-December.

I think its determined by temperatures...
I just checked. The average PA temp in Allentown, PA (near a lot of hills) is 47 degrees by Nov 30.

Speaking of that... looks like Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado are getting DUMPED on right now.

LuckyRVA On average I would say to count on most resorts opening the first week of December

im dying to ride again
big boulder typically starts running their lifts before everyone else. A few years ago it was Nov 11thish, last year it was December 3rd. The rest of the guys are normally a few weeks after that.

The average opening for all the bigger pa mountains is late november early december.

We're all amped for it dude. But for now we're stuck to bed mattress and trampoline boarding.
