One of the best early November snowmaking windows in modern history is expected to produce pre-Thanksgiving skiing in 4 states.

Killington opened on Wednesday, giving it first-in-New-England honors for the 7th straight year.

Bretton Woods opened on Friday, marking the 6th consecutive year the resort has earned first-in-New-Hampshire honors. Wildcat plans to offer the first top-to-bottom skiing on its more than 2,000 vertical foot mountain on Saturday.

Sunday River is expected to retain its first-in-Maine crown when it opens tomorrow.

Wachusett could be the first to operate in Massachusetts on Sunday, as Jiminy Peak has yet to announce an opening day.

By the Sunday, at least 8 ski areas are planning to operate in 4 states.

Maine
Sugarloaf - opens Sunday
Sunday River - opens Saturday

Massachusetts
Wachusett - opens Sunday

New Hampshire
Bretton Woods - open
Wildcat - opens Saturday

Vermont
Killington - open
Okemo - opens Saturday
Mount Snow - opens Saturday


While snowguns are operating at most of the usual early opening ski areas, a few surprises have popped up as well. In Vermont, Bolton Valley and Mad River Glen have fired up guns already, perhaps the earliest in each area's history. Meanwhile, snowmaking is in progress as far south as Mohawk Mountain in Connecticut.
