It's funny you think this is going to happen.
They are skiing in Breckenridge, Arapahoe, Mammoth, Loveland, Keystone, Wolf Creek, and maybe a few molehills in the midwest I had heard about opening in October. If not for the 70 degree weather they'd be skiing at Killington and Mount Snow tomorrow.
And by the way, 99% of ski resorts in the US plan to open this winter.
You're welcome to hunker down and stay at home for the next 12 months but I'm afraid people will be skiing this winter.
