    You will be behind/in the storm the whole way at that hour. Local (CT) forecast calling for the storm to be pulling in to CT midnight/2AM. Starting here as slop. Be prepared for some slick roads between CT and VT.

    Opening day is officially at hand as we’ll be skiing and riding tomorrow morning starting at 8:00 a.m.

    Last night, our snowmakers were able to make some major gains from the top of Canyon right down into the base area, with our fan guns hammering the trails as the temps dipped into the low 20s. Throughout today, they kept at it as long as possible and with several guns still going as I type this, we can confidently say that we plan to open tomorrow morning with top-to-bottom skiing and riding.

    At 8:00 a.m. tomorrow the plan is to begin spinning our Canyon Express and Challenger lifts which will access skiing and riding on Cascade, Free Fall, River Run, and Canyon. While Canyon will be open for skiing, it has had the least amount of time for snowmaking operations, so we recommend using this trail only for access back down to the main base area, and not for lapping. That being said, Free Fall is looking mint! Note: Early season conditions do exist and there will be no beginner terrain available tomorrow. There is a potential for some high winds tomorrow which could potentially cause wind holds, so please check the snow report for updates throughout the day.

    For those of you looking to ride park, our Carinthia Diggers have been up building a special early season park over on Cascade Flats, where we will plan to offer 6-10 features depending on how things go this evening. Note: There will be no trails running to Carinthia, so there will be no skier services or lifts running out of that base area to start the season.

    I have not yet, but take a close look at the weather at Wildcat. Mt Snow changes over probably before closing. Wildcat holds snow much longer. Again I haven't looked but you should.....
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    wildcat shows snow until after they close. Snow shows mix in the morning and rain after noon.

    Ouch. No Bluebird, on a day with shit weather very likely (yes could be a magical winter wonderland) that's a really tough decision someone had to make over in West Dover. Challenger might end having quite the lift line, but I'm wondering if tough weather will keep the crowds away. Also wonder when the last time was that it served as the main lift of the mountain for a weekend.

    They recommend only using Canyon trail to get back to the base area. So I'd imagine it's in pretty rough shape. They want people to stick to the Freefall or the Cascade/River Run routes I guess.

    Idk...models keep trending colder...looks like it will certainly change over but not till noon or later.

    So the fact that my kids social plans (including hosting a Halloween party tomorrow night for my youngest) now have me not feeling as bad about watching game 4 of the World Series here at my house in CT as opposed to at my condo at Mount Snow!!

    Yeah I'm not nearly as bummed about having to work tomorrow as I thought I was going to be. I'll still go over Sunday for some turns though.

    Hopefully game 4 gets over before 3:30 in the morning! Stayed up and watch that depressing game 3.

    Here now...8am start. Snow and sleet has turned into mostly sleet with some rain the final hundred couple feet of Canyon. Freefall very slick, Cascace pretty good, River run pretty good but crowded. Canyon has the best snow for sure but is very narrow...WROD...

    Maybe .5" of sleet on the ground up top. Mixing in pretty well with snow surfaces. Lot's of peeps and it's the typical Mt. Snow crowd...so look over your shoulder

    Visibility is poor up top with fog but is OK most of the way down. Solid day. I'm in for lunch now as I had become soaked. Looks like a much drier afternoon than forecasted.
