The Troll opened yesterday, October 19, from 2pm to 8pm, with two runs served by a chairlift and a T-bar. Pre-season conditions are in place, the resort warned.

“Opening in mid-October is not unusual, but being able to deliver snow of such high quality so early is something not to be missed.”

Two ski resorts in Minnesota opened Tuesday, with Wild Mountain winning the race to open, followed closely by Andes Tower Hills. Wild Mountain spun a tow and Andes Tower Hills opened its magic carpet.
