Ski areas from Massachusetts to Maine are planning to offer top to bottom skiing this weekend.
Wachusett opened the Massachusetts ski season today and will be joined by Berkshire East (its earliest opening on record), Jiminy Peak, and Ski Ward tomorrow. All four are skiing top to bottom. Massachusetts did not have four ski areas in operation until November 23 last year.
In operation since November 3, Killington was joined by Mount Snow on Wednesday. Vermont had five ski areas in operation at this time last year. The three areas not yet operating this year have been acquired by Vail or Alterra in the past few years.
Bretton Woods opened the New Hampshire ski season on Wednesday and is joined by Cranmore, Loon, and Wildcat this weekend. With top to bottom skiing, Wildcat is sporting the largest vertical drop in New England this weekend. Bretton Woods is offering nearly top to bottom skiing courtesy its new gondola. All four were in operation around this time last year.
In operation since last weekend, Sunday River was joined by Sugarloaf today in Maine. Both were in operation around this time last year.
