It’s getting cold outside, snow is falling, and ski season is right around the corner! Time to grab a last minute deal on a pass, hit the ski swap, and make your winter plans. Another El Nino is in the works, which could mean big snow for California, fingers crossed.

Sugar Bowl: 11/30

Your opening date for Northstar is incorrect. Hopefully it does not turn out to be prophetic as they had a hard time opening last November due to temps being too warm to make snow.
Northstar’s web page calendar at https://www.northstarcalifornia.com/explore-the-resort/activities-and-events/events-calendar.aspx says “Opening Day Northstar California Resort will open for the 2018-19 winter season on November 16, 2018, weather permitting.”
You are right. Just fixed. Thanks for that.
Sugarbowl has projected an opening date of 11/30/2018
