Attitash hopes to be open Dec 11th

From the Attitash Website 12/4/10:

Projected Opening Day

Due to the extensive rain and projected forecast for the next few days, we expect December 11 to be to the opening day for the 2010 - 2011 winter season.

Unfortunately, due to this rain and the warmer temperatures, we could not make snow last night and will not be able to make snow tonight. We do hope that we will be able to resume snowmaking efforts Thursday night if the temperatures permit and will make snow at every possible opportunity.

The taste of the natural snow we saw the other day only has us even more fired up for this season and we're fervently praying Mother Nature sends us more soon, since it's time to get this winter rolling!

Wildcat due to open December 11th

From the Wildcat Facebook Fan Page December 1st, 2010:

Bad news/good news: Bad news, we're set to repeat last year's December opening date and are now aiming at Saturday, December 11th to open this season. Good news, after today's rain event, we should be getting in to a stretch of cold weather to consistently resume snowmaking to work on that effort. Pray for snow.

Sunday River claims to have the most open terrain in NE

Most Open Terrain In New England
We were the first in the East to open for the season back in October, and thanks to the continued magic of Sunday River snowmakers we have the most open terrain in the East. We’re carving across Locke Mountain, Barker Mountain, Spruce Peak and South Ridge with the Chondola and North Peak being added to the mix shortly. With more terrain and more snow, it’s that much easier to find your happy place. See the Mountain Report for some new photos, or take a look at our new video shot this morning.
