    I'm putting my money on Monday the 5th season passholder opening at Killington. It looks like a marginal 12 hour window Friday night, another 12 hour window Saturday night, and a decent window Sunday night. The NOAA hourly forecast at 3,400ft is calling for a high of 36 on Sunday so it may very well be possible they can keep the guns running through the day. 5-6 years ago, even after the Nyberg era ended I would've said no way they keep the guns going in temps like that but with World Cup the philosophy has definitely changed and if they can make a frozen product they pump it out.

    It would be awesome if they opened on Sunday, even if it's just for passholders. I'm assuming that the Ikon pass doesn't count for passholders day? If it does I'll burn one just to start my season, if not I guess my season will start next weekend.

    I believe they welcomed Ikon passholders last year for day 1 passholder day. If they do again, I will be there as temps in Bethel aren't forecast to fall anywhere near as fast or low.

    Yes, they did, which was surprising.

    I usually wait until they have a few good runs to start. Hopefully by Thanksgiving.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.
