Will you be skiing or riding this week? At some resorts, you’ll be able to. Depending on where you go, you might have to wait. Here’s what you need to know.

  • Opening Friday – November 18th: Mt Rose, Boreal
  • Opening Wednesday – November 23rd: Heavenly, Northstar, Squaw/Alpine.

Note: Heavenly and Northstar are confident about their opening day announcements, due to their advanced snowmaking systems and cold temperatures in the forecast. Squaw and Alpine rely more on natural snow in order to open their terrain. Our confidence in a Wednesday opening for Squaw/Alpine is questionable.

What about the smaller resorts?

For resorts like Diamond Peak, Homewood and Sierra at Tahoe, don’t expect to start skiing until well after Thanksgiving
