The beginning of the 2019 - 2020 ski season established a new record for the earliest opening of the Mountain Creek Ski Resort by hosting skiing on Saturday, November 16th.  Buffy & John were present to enjoy first runs on the Sugar Slope with friends working at the Resort and die-hard ski and riding buddies.  As in the past we plan to track the number of days on snow.  The results are below.
