Record early opening for New Hampshire ski resort!

Usually opens in early November

_____________

The Conway (NH) Daily Sun reports in today’s edition that Wildcat Mountain in Pinkham Notch, NH is having its earliest opening in its 61 year history,” says reader Kevin Koffenberger.  “It will open on Saturday, Oct. 27 edging 2005’s opening by one day. ”

“Ten inches (25.4 cm)of new snow Wednesday combined with ideal snowmaking conditions has allowed for the early opening.  Nearby Mt. Washington (literally across the street from the resort) reported 21.1” (53.6 cm) at the summit.

“Usually Wildcat opens in early November with limited terrain.  Snowmaking requires several hours of sub 28F wet bulb temperatures at night, so it has been at least a little cool for a week or two to allow them to do this, and the outlook for that to continue (otherwise they don’t bother if it is just going to melt).

“Let the AGW cretins continue to make increasingly outlandish temperatures and keep adjusting past temperature records downwards,” says Kevin, “because maybe that will mean we will soon have September skiing!
