    With less than 36 hours to make snow I'd guess it would just be the typical Ralph's and Challenger and pretty narrow. WROD here I come!

    Last year they opened with Conifer too IIRC. Don't know if that will be possible this year.

    No I don't think they did, I was there opening day. Doesn't say in my log though so I could remember wrong.

    With temps in the low 10s tonight and 48 straight hrs of snowmaking temps conifer might have a chance. But if it's just Ralph's and Challenger still better than hiking to rime.

    As a former season pass holder (for a decade), Wa used to always open with Conifer, a few years back they switched to opening w Ralph's and Challenger.

    It's s pleasant surprise to see them blasting away on Conifer. Could be pretty decent product for Sunday, given the temps.

    See you there

    That sizable upgrade to their pumping capacity that Wachusett did a year ago looks like it being put to good use!

    This is pretty awesome Wachusett is putting in a solid effort, but let's not get crazy here...

    So Wachusetts opens at elevation 1000' and Killington can't get top-to-bottom by this weekend?

    If I were a K passholder I'd be livid. As it's been stated...the stairs are great when temps are marginal and K is the only game in town, but when there's 48+ hours of mid-winter snowmaking conditions they need to get top-to-bottom no excuses.
    2017-2018 1 Day and counting...
    Mount Snow: 11/12
