Has anyone heard if they will start blowing snow and try to open this weekend? This pic was up on their Facebook

If this is true then I might have to take a ride up there... doubt it though. I can't see them making that much snow in such a short amount of time

Edit: then again after reading some of the comments and seeing the weather forecast it could be possible... I'm praying!

Well that is why I ask because I would make the drive up. From what I heard the weather should be more than good enough to open. I guess we will wait and see. Cross your fingers

As far as I know there's only 3-6" in the forecast and I don't think they've started making any snow yet. Maybe they'll surprise all of us haha

My guess is not this weekend, but next. Up until this week, it has been unseasonably warm so my guess is that they haven't had a chance to make snow, and clearly they haven't had much natural yet either. I'm sure they'll continue making snow like mad now that temps are back to more typical ranges for this time of year (and there is more snow in the forecast too).

Interestingly, they used to typically open in October, but it must not have been worth it:

They did it in 05/06 so it's all on conditions. I have heard conditions near the top are perfect for snow making and they have been getting natural snow since yesterday. It looks like they turned on the guns yesterday so I don't think they did that for no reason. Those things are expensive to run so it leads to a Saturday or Sunday opening......but we can only hope and wait. I was reading they will announce it today between 10am and 2pm if they will open or not.

Holy tits! I am driving up there the second I find out they are opening! I was so stoked that it was snowing last night and the only thing I could think of was pulling out the board, waxing it up and heading up north! Let's see it dump!
