Mount Snow is open this weekend with some rails and boxes in its Launch Pad beginner area. The mini-park is served by the novice triple chair.
Even with very limited terrain, about 400 skiers and riders came out on Saturday to start their season of sliding on the snow.
Unseasonably cold temperatures this month have allowed Vermont ski resorts to take the snowmaking guns and fans out of storage and make snow.
Mount Snow is not expected to remain open during the week. We'll see if they open up their beginnner lift again next weekend or if another ski resort tries to open with more terrain prior to November 1.
