Whistler opening day 22Nov14The 2014/15 snowboarding season is finally upon us! Many resorts in North America and Europe are now open for business, with many of them having opened ahead of schedule due to good early season snowfall.

This weekend Whistler in Canada cranked up its lifts five days early, and Vail in Colorado also celebrated its opening weekend.

Even in France, where they’re notorious for sticking to planned opening dates regardless of snow conditions, resorts are starting to cave in to pressure to open early. This weekend Courchevel, Alpe d’Huez, Montgenevre and La Clusaz all opened early, joining high altitude resorts Val Thorens and Tignes, which opened as planned.
