Wild Mountain has fired up the snowguns and is starting to blanket the slopes. They plan on opening as soon as possible, which could be any day. Wild has consistently been one of the first Heartland ski areas to open for the season. You can call (651) 465-6315, or click on wildmountain.com. to check on daily progress or to see if they might have opened over night. Wild's annual demo days are scheduled for Nov. 17-18. It's a great way to check out the new equipment and try before you buy.
