SAM Magazine--Woodbury, CT, November 6, 2006--It may come as a surprise to those enjoying some balmy fall days in New England, but the region is open for skiing, courtesy of plucky Woodbury ski area, which pulled out all the snowmaking stops to open on Friday. With man-made conditions and a solid base, the ski area clocked a record attendance on its second day of the season, Saturday, November 4.

"The season is off to a great start," says owner Rod Taylor, who added that his motivation to fire up the lifts as soon as possible is because, "I love the sport," says Taylor

Taylor and the staff at Woodbury say advances in snowmaking equipment and natural temperature inversions that take place at the area were keys to the early opening. \
