according to SR they opened on Thursday, 11/8
"We're open! Our incredible snowmakers have been living up to their reputation as the best around and thanks to them Sunday River was the first ski resort in the Northeast to open for the season on Thursday!"
Woodbury opened at 4PM on Wednesday. It's the 3/4th year in a row they have been the first.
Course, it's all debatable. Woodbury gets constantly dissed cause it's a small ski hill but I for one has very impressed with Rod Taylor's ownership.
Heck, last season another Ct ski hill(Powder Ridge) after the poor start/outlook just threw in the towel and never opened all season. Woodbury does the complete opposite even they are near each other.
Ownership that is committed to the skiers/riders that go there is a vanishing priority in light of all the resorts owned by large corporations and even worse, private equity firms. How could you not be impressed by a little place in CT that gets the place open so early year after year.
Anyway...it's all good. Personally I don't count the one day that SR opened then closed the next day plus it was only for a few hours, not a whole day as being opening for the season.
Having said that it's obvious that you guys had a great time up at SR and that really is supposed be what it's all about. The pics were awesome and the snow looked surprisingly good as well.
