I just got off the phone with Ted up at Beaver Mountain and they are open for skiing and snowboarding. He also said that the storm is bearing down on Beaver Mountain making the second day of winter a great day to open up.
Beaver Mountain has that small mountain feel that many grew up with. Take this morning's snow report for example. If it were any more familiar you'd feel like you were talking to family. Take a listen: Beaver Mountain Opening Day Snow Phone
Jake is headed up there tomorrow and will have photos and a report for the blog by Christmas.
