    Camera Mount Snow - Opening Day!

    Date: October 27, 2018

    Resort: Mount Snow

    Conditions: October - Conditions Don't Matter!

    Report: Well this isn't the earliest I've skied - that would be October 23, 2010 at Sunday River. But it is the earliest I have skied top to bottom at a mountain. Today I made it up to Snow to take advantage of October turns and to pick up my pass. I wasn't anticipating anything more than a few runs, with the weather changing over from snow, to sleet to freezing r&!n... All in all, I am very impressed with what Snow was able to pull off. ROTD was Freefall, it was skiing like mid winter (firm and fast!) . And now for some pics:

    Thar be snow in these hills!

    Going up tomorrow morning at least, unless Game 4 goes another 18 innings, see how long I last. I'll be sure to jump on let you know what type of crowds there are if any. All the pictures I saw today seem to indicate pretty light traffic overall.

    I was there for a few hours in the morning and experienced minimal (5 chair) wait times at the lifts. Trails were a bit crowded though and shared with park rats (Carinthia not yet open.).

    Cool! They did well considering the fluctuating temps over the last week and a half. Yesterday was dicey as well in SoVT; we had a lot of mixed precip at our place which is around the 900ft mark.We went into Bratt in the AM...all rain there.


    Glad they were able to open! Very early season skiing for Southern VT!

    Lifts were pretty much ski on all day today, but one time I did have to wait maybe 45 seconds over on Challenger(sarcasm). In all honesty the snow was great pretty much all over, only issue was River Run getting crowded in waves and the park on Cascade should have been pushed to skiers right another 15 feet and not right in the middle like it is. They might not have taken into account people just lapping the park and hiking it all day.

    Wasn't too bad, never waited more than a minute at the base of freefall. Hard to say how next weekend will look since the weather for the upcoming week looks rather crappy. Happy to have gotten yesterday in though.
