Opening Day Coming Soon at Vermont Ski Resorts

Posted By: The Ski Channel on October 27, 2011 5:44 am

There’s been a lot of activity at the ski resorts in Vermont this week and for good reason.  Epic ski resorts like Mount Snow, Okemo Mountain Resort, and Stowe Mountain resort will soon begin making snow in order to open earlier and with more quality terrain than other resorts in the area. The snowmaking will combine with natural snow that hit Vermont last week to commence early season rail jams. 

Annual ski making in Vermont covers 4,360 acres of land with over 160 lift chars. With over 600 miles of snowmaking pipes and superior snow guns, Vermont ski resorts have enough capacity to fill Gillette Stadium with over 40 feet of snow in one hour,” said Ski Vermont President Parker Riehle. Instead of watching the game, head to the slopes because Thanksgiving will be Hug a Snowmaker Day.
