This seems so crazy early but for Wild Mountain, that's their goal! Every year their goal is to be the first ski and snowboard area open for the season in the entire Midwest. They've been doing that for 40+ years, according to KARE 11.

KARE 11 also says that, in a statement, Wild Mountain vice president Amy Frischmon said, "We will be opening with Front Stage, a terrain park and two rope tows. As long as the forecast holds true, we plan to add Expressway and Intermediate run and a chairlift on Friday."

I can't even imagine going skiing before Halloween, that seems nuts! But I guess if you love it, you'll take any opportunity to go. Wild Mountain is located about an hour north of the Twin Cities near Taylors Falls.
