The resort opened its Sundown lift at 1 p.m. Friday, with plans to announce more lift openings into the weekend.
“It’s a great start to the season,” Goulet said. “We hope it continues, and open up as much terrain as we can before Christmas, and we hope to have a really really good season.”
Powder Mountain caps its crowd sizes, selling only 1,500 tickets each day and limiting season pass sales to 3,000 at the 8,464 acre resort.
