    Who will open First?

    Even if it's only for 24 hours, then they close again
    2017/2018 Days

    A-Basin - 10/13

    Loveland Pass - 10/6

    2016/2017 Days - 34 (inc. 10 BC)
    2015/2016 Days - 57 (inc. 2 BC)
    2014/2015 Days - 58
    2013/2014 Days - 47 (inc. 6 BC)

    I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called Aspen.

    Sunday River, now that Locke and T2 are back in play. They need a good early snowmaking effort after the gaffs last year.

    No doubt, they just got a ton of snow. The Sierras did too. Just got out of Truckee airport in time yesterday morning (or unfortunately though I didn't have any gear with me).

    NO they are not. They are open only for snowseeing this weekend. Skis/boards/bikes will not be allowed on the lift. They have a small jib park set up near the base, I don't call that open for skiing.

    Are we talking northeast? Then it will Be Sunday River or Killington as usual. It talking North America - A Basin. But there are an infinite list of opportunities for others. The three mentioned are generally the case.

    Blowing out the mice I'd suspect, it's going to get really warm in CO next week.
