    Mount Snow: Inside Track

    Well, we decided to start our own thread in honor of the fact that we once again have the most open terrain in the East.

    Check it!

    Mount Snow: 181 acres, 19 trails

    Okemo: 133 acres, 20 trails

    Loon: 100 acres, 16 trails



    Sunday River: 93 acres, 16 trails

    Stowe: 85 acres, 23 trails

    Killington: 79 acres, 24 trails

    Bretton: 78 acres, 9 trails

    Stratton: 72 acres, 13 trails

    Sugarloaf: 68 acres, 9 trails

    Got questions for us? Write them below and I'll do my best to get them answered for you.

    Acres of green terrain, and go nowhere connector trail segments do little for the experience, and aren't a reliable source to compare. If I was Mt Snow, I'd talk about fan gun snow and fan gun trails.

    We totally agree. That's why we focused on the top-to-bottom experiance right out the gate this year. Way better to get actual laps in, rather than leapfrogging all over the place.

    My first day of the season will be Monday the 27th. Picked up a $39 ticket for Mt Snow on Liftopia.

    What kind of snowmaking push will you make Sunday into Monday with the good temps? What Mt Snow has open right now looks great but of course I'm curious if there will be even more terrain opening up.

    Anyway can't argue with the facts... Mt Snow has the most complete runs open. Glad to see you positioning yourself this way for early season, it's nice to have some options in November.

    What other mountains aren't doing the same. It's thanks giving weekend, what do you expect? Kudos to mount snow. More terrain more options.
    And on the seventh day, Ullr created Magic Mountain...

    This sounds like Killington, with the caveat formerly green trails and connectors.

    We'll be firing up pretty agressively duing the Sunday-Monday window. As for details, I can't leak any yet.

    Love that you're not only giving information out on the forum but being willing to answer questions!

    I have two questions. What is your snowmaking plan/timeline for additional North face trails? It is awesome that you had freefall from the get go as it is a fun trail and provides some variety and escape midday, but guns have been silent there for a few weeks now so I assume something is coming soon.

    Also I have a more general question about the early opening in general. Do you think you'll continue to be this aggressive opening the mountain in years to come?

    1. North Face is next on the list. We wanted to lay down a great base on a number of our blue trails in advance of the holiday weekend so that we had enough options for our average passholder to have a great weekend.

    2. You know it! With this new system we can make a ton of snow very quickly, so we'll for sure be continuing this early season push as long as we get the early season temps. We haven't figured out how to make it colder...yet...
