An unseasonably warm fall in the Pacific Northwest has quickly changed to colder weather. Recent snowfall in Oregon and much of the western U.S. has many riders thinking about opening day.

Typically, resort opening days in Oregon are around Thanksgiving, although I did ski a powder day at Mt Hood Meadows on November 1st one year. Many enthusiastic riders have already hiked for some turns in the backcountry.
