@WASHOUT, be aware of course that "fully open" is entirely weather dependent...

Most areas I expect are still in clean up and maintenance mode and won't have evn thought about opening dates (with the exceptions of summer opening dates).

Chamonix I would expect to have penciled in full opening 17.12.16 and closing Grands Montets 30.04.17. With weekend openings the few weekends before.

I have always found the following link very useful:

Generally if you don't want to do glaciers then the first resorts to open are in Scandinavia and Finland.

@yuppie, +1. Opening dates for Norwegian and Swedish resorts varies hugely from year to year - usually late November, but can be as early as late October and as late as first week in December. Anyway, even if they are open, there won't be much mileage early on - resorts will typically open only a small number of runs to start with.

Yeah I understand opening dates are weather depending and some resorts even open early on their advertised dates. But I remember coming across a Web page with all the dates which was pretty handy.
