Opening day Vermont?

Some friends and me are wanting to head up early season for a weekend and I was wondering about when they normally open for the season.

The last couple of years, Killington has opened in the first week of November. Have fun!

Okemo has a projected opening day of Nov 19th but of course that depends on the weather. The northern VT resorts like Jay peak may open slightly earlier. Im probably making a trip up there first weekend in December. Last year I went to Okemo opening weekend and they only had a few trails ready......it was nice to be riding, just not sure the trails were worth the 6 hour drive. Id wait till it gets good especially if you have a far drive.

I recall Killington was first to open last season on November 2. I made it up on the 11th and conditions were pretty good, though there were only about 4 trails open, all on the upper half of the mountain only (the ones served by the North Ridge triple). Also, to get back down the mountain without having to hike, you have to take the stairs (240 of them) that run between the chairlift and the summit lodge in order to catch the gondolas back down. Still, the coverage and condition was much better than I expected for that early.

Def nice to start riding early, but like other people said, sometimes it's not really worth it to make the drive that early in the season. Last year I went to Killington in early December and there was plenty of terrain open.

Pray for an early start to the season!
