Are You Snowboarding This Weekend?

Cause you could be! It’s been cold enough across North America that a few resorts have turned on the guns and made it happen. Here’s the list of newly-open resorts, plus their glorious white-ribbon-of-death offerings.

Nakiska, Calgary

Some place we’ve never heard of in Calgary is proud to be the first open resort in Canada.

Saturday, October 29th and Sunday October 30th from 10am-3:30pm. Nakiska will be open for weekends until Regular Season 7-Day a week operations start in December. Skiing and Riding will be off the Gold Express Chair on 3 ski runs- Upper Mapmaker, Middle Mapmaker and Big Bear. Skiers and Riders will upload and download on the Olympic Express Chair.

Boreal, Ca

Boreal opened up Friday for some night boarding, and is open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Saturday Oct 29. Lift tickets are $15 for all ages.

Sunday River, Me

The Sunday River main page reads, “We’re open! The Locke Mountain Triple is running today through Monday, and there’s snow on the way tonight. Woot!” There’s allegedly a foot of snow on the way, but more importantly, the one open chairlift services am early-season terrain with a single barrel rail, flat rail and flat box.

Wild Mountain, MN

Wild Mountain is opening today for hiking, and plans to have the tow rope running by four. According to pre season rail jam today (Oct. 29), and we’re at the Downtown Throwdown in the shred-epicenter pf San Francisco (it’s supposed to be 70 and sunny though.) Also, A Basin, Wolf Creek and Timberline are still kicking from their previous openings. Remember, early season conditions “do exist” and if you suck at boarding, you won’t have fun. If you’re not any where near any of these places, don’t despair, winter will be here soon. Very soon.
