Sunday River, Maine

Projected Opening Date:October 14

Sunday River has opened on Halloween the past two years, with two trails and one small terrain park, beating out all other major East Coast resorts for "first to open" bragging rights. The resort has the largest fleet of snowmaking guns in the East—1,900 are aimed and ready to blow as soon as temperatures in Maine drop this season. Hard to top that. Look out, Killington.
