Despite limited snowmaking opportunities, Killington and Sunday River have remained in operation this week after reopening on Sunday. Both areas have open trail counts of four. Sunday River now has top to bottom skiing on Locke Mountain.
Meanwhile, Bretton Woods has been making snow in recent days and plans to open with free skiing (with non-perishable food donation) on one trail on Wednesday. The area then hopes to reopen after the forecasted subpar weather expected to arrive later this midweek.
Numerous ski areas have used cold nights and mornings to test their snow guns and, in some cases, build base for a planned Thanksgiving Week opening.
In Maine, snowmaking is in progress at Sugarloaf.
In Massachusetts, both Jiminy Peak and Wachusett have fired up their systems.
In Vermont, Jay Peak, Okemo, Smugglers Notch, Stowe, Stratton, and Sugarbush have fired up guns.
