The lifts haven’t even started spinning, and Instagram newsfeeds are already inundated with footage of skiers out there getting sendy. Skiers at Stowe dodge rocks to cruise through a dusting from last weekend’s eleven inch storm. Folks in Mammoth are earning their October turns through bluebird pow.

But as a weekend warrior, or someone living in a place less blessed by mother nature, you’re probably fiending for skiing, asking yourself, “When will I get my fix?” Wait a second though, there’s no need to get antsy. With resorts all across the U.S. slated to open in the upcoming month, you’re sure to be on the slopes, shredding in no time.

To make things a bit easier for you, we’ve compiled a region-by-region list of projected openings.

Keep in mind these ski resort opening dates are estimated or tentative, and subject to change. Always check a mountain’s snow report before you go, so you can have the best experience possible.
