East Coast Opening Dates

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Whats the deal this winter, anyone gonna try and open before Killington? From what Ive heard Killington is planning to open Nov. 11, that could be a little late to take first place if there was a good shot of cold air. So much for the days of truckin' it up hill in Ocotober.

Well, if you believe the extended forecast for Killington/Rutland, the average daytime high will be 57.5 F and the average lows will be 36.9 F from now to mid-October.

If true, we'll need a fairly significant weather change in the last half of the month for an Oct opening. Maybe another freak storm??

Things have changed in the management structure of ASC, but it would still be a big surprise if K-ton didn't open at least a few days before SR.

Belleayre Mountain is scheduled for a Nov 11 opening. Belleayre has been in the top 5 to open on the east coast for the last few years.

To the snowmakers it has everything to do with the freezing point of water vapor and wet bulb equations. In other words if its not cold enough for long enough it doesn't matter what the date on brochure says. Many years its Halloween turns, other years its after thanksgiving.
