There are always a few passholders who enjoy going on opening day. Not for the skiing/boarding but just to be part of the festivities. There is a small group who sleep outside at the lift overnight before opening day at one of the ski resorts in Australia. Total ski nuts!You may be right, though it's hard to imagine the typical Crystal passholder being interested in the terrain that's open.
bummer!!I've been skiing and snowboarding 4 days so far? We were there at opening chair and got some pretty sweet breakfast sandwiches. I’ve already lost my helmet and goggles … bummed. My new snowboard is fantastic.
Yes, Smuggs opened Friday 11/18. And yes, the warm weather-> ski weather transition was so weirdly abrupt!Little late to this, Stowe opened a day later on Saturday 11/19 and I believe Hunter as well. Bolton opened the day after thanksgiving (Friday) and Smuggs perhaps too? Or a day after.

I needed to have gone uphill on Sat/Sun on 11/19 or 11/20 (we got snow the Wednesday before). But the forecast was just getting warmer. I don’t have rock AT skis and I just couldn’t pull the trigger. So I’ll have to wait after this warm cycle … hopefully we get a dump and I can go touring
funny I had just gone hiking on Nov 9? And it was like 70F. We hiked around side country and took a look at some of the paths between Smuggs and Stowe. Lol. We thought we’d still be mountain biking.
during return to work training last Sunday 11/20, our ski trainer was like welp, I was mountain biking on Tuesday and then we got snow and now I’m on skis. I always imagined a perfect transition and now it’s happened. <~ or something to that effect!
Oops you are right! We skied Sat 11/26, Smuggs opened Black Friday!
