Time to dust off those boots, sharpen those edges and hit the slopes. Lookout Pass announced this week that ski season will open Nov. 13, with eight runs groomed and waiting. As of today, the hill reports a depth of 18 inches at the summit. It won't be a powder, but who the hell cares? Skiing before Thanksgiving? That don't exactly happen every year.
No joke. According to Lookout Pass Marketing Manager Ric Clarke, this is the second earliest the recreation area has opened in recent history (we're missing the record—Nov. 12—by one day). So grab your rock skis and throw a few PBR tallboys in your pack. We'll see you on the hill.
