The Snowmaking Team started Friday morning.

“Our Snowmaking Team have outdone themselves with this very quick turn around. We saw an opportunity to lay down base on Sunset Trail and the team rallied so we could get our guests on snow this weekend!”, says Mountain Manager, Paul Trippi.

Bristol Mountain will open Sunset Trail and Sunset Lift Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for intermediate and advanced level skiers and snowboarders only.

Lodge Services such as Guest Services, Tuning Center, Bristol Mountain Ski & Sport, season locker room and Rocket Lodge will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Carver’s Kitchen will offer a limited menu.
