Free Skiing @ Bretton Woods 11/18
Wow, they did that without any fanfare. The website has it hidden - you have to go to the snow report page to find out they are open.
I looked at Facebook and couldn't find any announcement, but I bet it's there somewhere.
One trail, Rangeview, will be open. Sunny, high of 46.

Must have been a press release. First Tracks and Boston media outlets had the news. From the Bretton Woods snow conditions webpage on 11/18/15:
SNOW REPORTER'S COMMENTS
It's time to test your ski legs! Bretton Woods will be OPEN TODAY, 11/18, from 9am - 4pm with top to bottom skiing and riding on our 1 mile Range View Trail with access provided by the Zephyr High Speed Quad. Lift tickets are FREE today only with the donation of a non-perishable food item! Conditions are man-made, machine-groomed, variable snow for intermediate and advanced skiers only (no beginner terrain). Rental shop (8am - 4pm) and TreeTop retail store (9:00am - 4:00pm) will also be open today. The Slopeside Climbing Wall will be open from 12 - 4pm today as well with FREE climbing with the donation of an additional, non-perishable food item. Please note that the mountain will be closed on Thursday (11/19) and Friday (11/20) with a projected reopening date of Saturday (11/21), weather and snow conditions permitting. Stay tuned to this report for all the latest mountain information.
It's one uneventful, low pitch run, accessed by a high speed quad. It will be good for finding out which muscles you missed as you season tuned your body.
I tend to go early there every year for one day before everything else opens, just to remind myself how to ski.
I called them; they aren't sure they'll be open Sat-Sun. That will be weather dependent; in other words, everything may melt and not be replenished in time. For that reason they don't have a lift ticket price yet determined for the weekend.
