A-Basin saw big snowfall over the past 7 days with somewhere in the vicinity of two feet at higher elevations. Right now what we know is that High Noon will be open but we’re unsure as to what other runs will be open.
“The mountain is almost ready. And we know you’re ready. Let’s get this party started! OPENING DAY is Friday, October 19, 2018. 🎉Black Mountain Express starts spinning at 9:00am. For all Opening Day information and details, head to our website. See you here!”
Remember to keep your stoke in check to some degree if you’re getting out there this weekend. It’s bound to be crowded and nobody wants to end their ski season on day #1.
