WARREN, Vt. (WCAX) The recent cold weather means an earlier-than-expected opening for a Vermont ski resort.

Sugarbush first planned to open Saturday, Nov. 18, but after a week of successful snowmaking, the resort will now open Thursday, Nov. 16.

Lifts will start running at noon Thursday-- but only for pass holders. The general public will be welcome Friday, Nov. 17.
