Apparently both Gore and Whiteface got the message that today is my birthday. Both ski areas fired up their snowmaking plants last night for the first time this season. A press release from Gore this morning states:
“We had a really good first night of snowmaking,” commented General Manager Mike Pratt. “We ran over 70 guns, there was very little wind, and temperatures got down to the teens.”
Whiteface also began snowmaking last night. The picture below was taken Monday evening.
Opening Day for both ski mountains is planned for Friday, November 23.
