The ski season has started.
With temperatures cool enough for snowmaking, Mount Snow opened Saturday, its earliest start to the season in nearly a decade.
Killington and Okemo Mountain Resort are scheduled to open this week, and many ski areas plan to follow before the end of November.
The last time Mount Snow opened in early November was in 1998.
After a 3.5 million-dollar investment in snowmaking, the resort is reporting 11 trails open, three top to bottom and an eight-to-twelve-inch base.
