CANANDAIGUA, New York (December 9, 2021) –Bristol Mountain plans to open for its 57th season of operation on Friday, December 10th at 9am. With difficult conditions during this early season, it took a large effort to cover the mountain’s 1,200 vertical feet with snow. Bristol’s expansive snowmaking system covers 100% of its terrain, enabling them to create a winter full of snow days even during challenging weather patterns.

“We can’t wait to have guests back at the mountain!” stated Bristol Mountain General Manager Dan Fuller. “Hats off to our snowmaking team who pulled together through not ideal conditions to make this opening day possible. Our team of snowmaking professionals are among the best in the industry.”

The Comet Express Quad Lift will operate from 9am until 4pm tomorrow. The Upper Rocket and Lower Rocket trails, accessed by Ursa Major, will be open for advanced skiers and riders only. Terrain will not be available for beginner and intermediate skiers and riders. Bristol Mountain will be open this weekend Friday (December 10th), Saturday (December 11th) and Sunday (December 12th), from 9am – 4pm. In addition to skiing and riding, Bristol Ski & Sport will be open from 9am – 4pm for all of your holiday shopping needs. The Tuning Center will also be open from 9am – 4pm with quick turnaround times to ensure all of your equipment is ready for some early season turns.
