A buddy of mine is on the trail crew there so here's an update.
1) They started snowmaking this week to get the system running but its supposed to warm up next week so it'll all melt. The weather has been stupid and the humidity is just too high. Pray for dry and cold (nest snowmaking conditions)
2) The reason they opened last year so early was because we had a huge dump at the beginning of Oct and yes they were actually 2nd in North America.
3) COP should open around the middle of november if the weather isn't a dick. They can open the main hill in 5 days of -15. Park should follow within a month after at most.
Has it changed since you saw me there? I wouldn't really consider that "hitting 3 features without hiking" cause once you're done you gotta hike back up 300m or something again. I'm sure they could put in 4 or 5 small-esk jib features near the top like you said.
The East and West park should be open within the next week if it gets cold enough for 2 more days of snow making. They need some really dry snow but fingers crossed. The pipe needs to be cut and will open shortly afterward.
