NEWBURY — A combination of world-class snowmaking and favorable temperatures have allowed both Stowe and Okemo to start making snow at higher elevations during the first weekend of November.
Sister resort, Mount Sunapee, in Newbury, N.H., will begin snowmaking soon as well.
Opening day for the 2019/2020 season at all three resorts is approaching quickly. Stowe and Okemo are targeting Nov. 22 as the start of winter operations, while Mount Sunapee is aiming for Nov. 27. All three resorts will commemorate their opening days with “First Chair” celebrations.
Last year, Stowe and Okemo opened for the season in mid-November with top-to-bottom terrain. Efforts are being made to accomplish that again this year.
