With DC weekend now behind us and the NFL season finally about to start in NE (wait, the last four weeks weren't pre-season?!), it is time to focus on things draped in white.  I think we all agree the mountain has quite a challenge for an early open given the off season lift issues, what is everyone thinking for when opening day hits?

I'm going with October 31st.  They pulled this off in the pre Locke midstation days at least once, doubling the guns in Aurora gives them an equal chance this time.

A Monday seems like an odd day to open so I will go with Sunday the 30th or Friday the 4th for my Birthday

Soft opening at 2pm on Thursday 11/10. Followed by a long weekend of fun starting on Friday, Veteran's Day(11/11).

I am going w Friday November 11, late day opening w full opening Saturday the 12th.  

I'll go with Friday 11/11 11 am opening.

11/11 seems to be the early consensus, that would be my prediction too.

Monday November 7th,

except for those early/absentee voters, you'll be skiing BEFORE casting your ballot for president and whether to legalize weed in the state of Maine.

I am not confident that opening day will be in early November.  If you look at the NOAA and NECN long range climate patterns, it is looking like above normal temps into November and maybe into December.  They are saying that the pattern that we have now might stay in place until mid December.  My guess will be opening day the week of Thanksgiving.  Lets say 11/23.

That would be my plan B guess.  Thanksgiving weekend to match up with most NE resorts.  Not a bad thing if weather stays nice until then.  :)  A few months of solid mt biking is a nice "shoulder season"

Come on Hawk, we were in shorts a few years back during Fall Festval weekend and skiing the following weekend amongst the gorgeous foliage. I'm really hoping the 28th will happen with the elevation difference.
