I just got a reply from alpine because they were slacking...this is what they wrote...
Thank you for your interest in skiing and/or riding with us at Alpine.
The November 19th opening date is just a projected date. We could open
as early as this weekend. Please stay tuned to our website for all the
latest information. Think snow!
