Last week saw a couple of Colorado resorts start their lifts turning for the season, with more probably not far behind. Although some California ski resorts received their first snow in September, they haven’t yet seen the quantity that Colorado, Wyoming, and especially Montana has seen.

But fear not! Opening day for Californian ski areas is not far away, be patient and you’ll soon be shredding. If you really want to count down the days, here are the opening days for resorts…

  • Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe (yep, Nevada, we know…) – Oct. 25
