Vermont has battled through Burlington’s second heatwave this year but is, fortunately, preparing to open for the 2021-2022 ski season. Ski areas in Vermont have released their opening dates for this anticipated season.
Killington, the biggest ski resort in Vermont, plans to open its doors around mid to late October. Of course, this date relies on the weather to be as predicted. Still, looking at past openings being in late October or early November, Killington may be ready to open when planned.
Bromley Mountain plans to open in late November. Unfortunately, this hill will only be open for weekends until mid-December. Then it will stay open 7 days a week.
Jay Peak plans to open on November 27. This unique resort is located on the border between Canada and Vermont.
Known as one of the East’s best family ski resorts, Okemo plans to open on November 20.
Recently joining Vail Resorts and utilizing the Epic Pass as of 2019, Mount Snow aims to open on November 19.
The season for this forest-surrounded hill is predicted to start on December 4.

According to the Burlington Free Press, “Winter in Vermont now arrives 1 week later, and spring arrives 2 weeks later than it did in 1960.” Because of climate change, it is predicted that no one will be skiing in New England by the end of the century, states Cameron Wobus, a research scientist with the Environmental Protection Agency. Since the threats of climate change worsen each day, ski resort opening dates have been more important than ever to be aware of.
