Vermont Mountains Continue To Open For The 2020/2021 Ski Season

As we push closer to the official first day of winter, the ski mountains here in Vermont are starting to get into the swing of things. The state already has a handful of mountains open and ready to serve those looking to get some Green Mountain turns, but starting today, December 11th, and running through the weekend, the state gets a few more.

Starting off on this fine Thursday morning, we have Sugarbush and Smugglers' Notch starting to turn lifts, each with less than 10 trails and mostly machine-made snow, but they are open and ready to get the season started.

For those who are looking to abuse their Indy Pass during the early season, Bolton Valley has its sights set on tomorrow, Friday, December 11th for opening day, with night skiing to follow this coming Tuesday, December 15th.

Also, Bromley Mountain in southern Vermont is looking to get things going again this weekend. Bromley was able to open at the end of November but was not able to run this past weekend due to the unseasonable weather. They are looking to get back into action this coming weekend, December 12-13.

These mountains now join the others that have been open across the state, which include Jay Peak, Killington, Mount Snow, Okemo, Stowe, and Stratton. The rest of Vermont's ski mountains are shooting to be open in time for the Christmas holiday, with many looking to open during the coming week.

If you are looking to partake in any skiing and/or snowboarding at the Vermont mountains, please be sure to know and follow all of the COVID-19 travel guidelines that have been set for out-of-state visitors, which includes quarantines. Also, be sure to check with each mountain for specific guidelines, which may include the advance purchase of day tickets, day reservations, parking reservations, and other safety best practices.

Also, remember to check the mountain's conditions reports as soon as you are able. These mountains have been blowing snow and have seen some natural, and have been maintaining their hills accordingly. However, early season conditions still exist, so be mindful of your own abilities and skill levels.

Beyond that, enjoy the beginning of the 2020/2021 skiing and riding season and enjoy Vermont. #ILoVermont
