Is this the earliest Sunday River has ever opened?

 

Not quite. They opened on October 19th back in the 2015/2016 season. This is the second earliest. The earliest was back in 2009 when they opened on October 14th!

They expect to open on the T2 trail accessible through the Lock Mountain Triple lift in Barker Basin. But keep an eye open, as it's all dependent on the weather. Hit up Sunday River to get the latest conditions.

How the heck are they able to open so early? They fired up 124 snowguns Wednesday and they also had a couple of inches of the real stuff!

Okay..it really is time to say goodbye to summer now...right?
