Maybe the best part about waking up to November is the knowledge that we’ll be skiing and riding this month.
Of course, some had that honor last month when Killington opened one weekend exclusively for passholders, but as the coming days and nights get colder and allow for more significant snowmaking, more mountains will be running the lifts as soon as possible.
Here’s a look at some tentative opening dates in Vermont this season, courtesy Ski Vermont. Of course, all potential openings are subject to weather and conditions.
