Attitash isn't open either. They hope for Dec. 15th. I'd rather wait for some good conditions than ski on hardpack.
"We’re working on giving you the best conditions possible opening weekend, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit at home. Wildcat and Mount Snow are open, and are offering some of the best terrain in the East. Our season passes are reciprocal, so there’s no excuse for not getting out there. If you don't have a pass, you can get yours at peakpass.com. If you’re between the ages of 18-29, and you like saving money, the Drifter pass is only available until December 15th, so grab yours ASAP."
We've got our opening date set for Friday, Dec 15 with lifts spinning 9:00 am-9:00 pm. Terrain will likely be advanced only from the Summit, but we're going to make snow and ride out tomorrow's weather before we make the final calls on trails and lIFTS AVAILABLE.
NELSBEER said:There is very solid dry stuff deeper in the whales, micro spikes were required before the Saturday snow. Hopefully they will get all the pods of whales spread out to dry once the dampness is past - giving it time to dry while they pour dry freshies on top with the coming cold. Both ponds are full which was enough water to do the early opening trails from scratch in 2 days in the earlier years using 5 of the 6 pumps. Did you notice the new 'big toy' in the lot below the maintenance building... the rumored PB400 winch cat is now on site awaiting tread, blade & tiller attachment. I've heard, why does Crotched need a Winch.... it's cool, it is another much needed groomer and can put snow back on Jupiter Storm, Satellite Summit & upper Pluto's... but has anyone thought outside the box? ... can it do the ledges??? Who do we dare? ...

If no one else mentioned it yet, that fancy new web cam is working. It is pointed up Meteor. Don't anyone work anymore? Speaking of that, I haven't seen the boys come by yet. Must be in for lunch.
I may have to wear makeup now, when I get back on skis that is.
