This is our earliest opening day since November 9, 1991 and I also believe it is the quickest opening time from the first snow coming out of the snow guns to the opening of a trail for us. The Snowmaking Team started Friday morning and here we are in anticipation of having “First Chair” at noon one day later”, Broderick explains.
