The first day of fall may have just passed, but with some of the first flurries being seen at Mt. Rose, people are already talking about the upcoming ski season. After receiving 493 inches at Mt. Rose and 623 inches of snow at Sugar Bowl Resort during the 2018 – 2019 season, it’s easy to see why there would be rumblings and rumors of what the 2019 – 2020 season holds for skiers and snowboarders alike. For a look at when the resorts around the area will be opening up for the season, check out the list below:
