Snowbird got dumped on this past weekend, almost 3 feet since Saturday, and they are expecting another 1-2 tonight. Northstar-at-Tahoe got pounded too—over 5 feet since last Friday. And Kirkwood opens November 24th with plenty of snow on the ground. Do we even have to tell you where to ski this weekend?
Colorado is where it’s at this weekend. An early season storm dumped 36 inches in 72 hours on Summit County, and Vail and Winter Park got their fair share as well. If you’re in California or Canada you’ve got options, too: Squaw, Heavenly and Whistler are all opening this weekend.
