    Wachusett Opening Sunday 8AM

    Webcam shows snowmaking on Indian summer and conifer. Guessing they're also lighting up Ralph's and Challenger but can't see them on the cam.

    This would be one of their earliest openings, if not the earliest ever.

    I don't recall big crowds there for opening day, ever. Do you?
    Get my laps in, get out, get home with the whole afternoon to do yardwork & get ready for sunday night Pats game.

    Agree. At some point early season you get the teen racers training and that makes it a bit "interesting" shall I say? Narrow trail with skiers flying by, often on one ski and nowhere on the side to stop and get out of the way. Also Instructor Training.

    However first chair, first couple of hours are in my memory always fine.

    from Wa home page:

    "It's Time!

    Thanks to these record cold temperatures and hard work from our snowmaking team we'll be opening Sunday, November 12th 8am-8pm with Sundowner and Indian Summer to start and hope to add more trails later in the day.
    "

    Gahhh. I'm really hopeful the other trails are a go for 8 or 9 AM...

    Yeah, just saw that. That's good terrain to work on one footed skiing, but pretty darn flat. This is all so they can brag about how early they "opened."

    They're blowing on all their terrain and not over promising. I applaud the effort and bet there will be more before noon on Sunday.

    I'd be willing to bet Ralph's and Challenger will be ready to go right around opening as well. Conifer might take an extra day. I can also confirm they were firing up the guns on 10th when I was leaving.

    The road that cuts across Conifer, 10th and Smith takes a ton of snow to cover and make it skiable over. I hope you're right Zand about Ralph's and Challenger.
