Bristol Mountain open for the season

Bristol Mountain plans to be open this weekend for its 57th season of skiing and boarding.

The Finger Lakes Times reports the entire area is covered by snowmaking. General Manager Dan Fuller says the snowmaking team did one of its best jobs ever in getting Bristol ready for a Friday 9AM opening. With the lack of natural snow so far, only expert terrain is open. The Comet Express Quad Lift will take expert skiers to the Upper Rocket and Lower Rocket trails.

Bristol and its ski shop will be open today and this weekend from 9-4.
