When does ski season typically start?

I know there is not a set answer for this but when do slopes typically open at the resorts in park city? I have a week in early December but I didn't know if there would be anything open by then. Thanks!

PCMR will be earliest opening, generally mid to late November with very limited runs. Canyons on similar schedule. DV always holds until first full weekend in December and then opens with pretty good amount of terrain. In general, second week of December is starting to be reasonable albeit not full operation. FYI, Deer Valley will open on Dec. 7 this coming winter.

I think the goal is typically to be open for Thanksgiving Weekend. It can be earlier or later though. They do a good job of making snow, but often several runs will not be accessible this early in the season. If Park City isn't in operation, you could check Snowbird or Brighton that have higher base elevations, therefore it's cooler so they get more snow.
