Be the First to Hit the Slopes at these 11 U.S. Resorts with Early Opening Dates
In honor of enjoying some of the first tracks of the season, we rounded up 11 mountains across the country that will be among the first to open. Arapahoe Basin was the very first to open in the U.S. on Oct. 17 and it’s the only mountain currently open. But from Colorado to Vermont, other mountains around the country aren’t far behind. Most of the opening dates are tentative, dependent on weather, but if you don’t mind making the trip, you could be skiing much sooner than you think.
