In a photo finish, Sunday River will edge out Killington by 2 hours for first-to-open honors. Sunday River will open its T2 trail at 9 AM Monday, whilst Killington will open upper mountain terrain for passholders at 11 AM. Killington plans to be the first-to-open-for-the-season, as operations are expected to continue during the week, whilst Sunday River will close until the weekend.
Meanwhile, numerous other ski areas took advantage of cold weekend temperatures to fire up snowmaking.
In New Hampshire, Bretton Woods, Loon, Waterville, and Wildcat fired up guns, with the latter potentially aiming for a top to bottom opening as soon as next weekend.
In Maine, Sugarloaf fired up 50 guns.
In Vermont, Okemo, Stowe, and Sugarbush have commenced snowmaking.
