I haven't heard anything substantial yet. I read somewhere that Sunday River is thinking about blowing snow with the cold nights that are in the forecast, but I doubt they'll be able to open early. It'd be nice if they did though, I haven't been up there in a while, and apparently they have a new trail for their park that should make it pretty sweet. Everything looks like it'll be the typical thanksgiving - first week of december opening.
Anyone know of any early openers this year? Looks like a few mountains have given up the push lately to open late october/early november.
It's almost always Killington. I rode there on November 10 a few years ago...only 11 trails, advanced only, manmade snow, but it was actually really, really good. Especially since there was almost nobody there.
I generally HATE Killington, and they are notorious for lying about their conditions, but they take pride in being the first-open, last-closed.
