Camelback fired up the guns for the first time this season on Nov. 16. "Camelback's state-of-the-art snowmaking system is ready to go," said the ski area's Richard Wiseman. "Our snowmaking crew looks forward to putting it to use as we work toward an early December opening date." Camelback officials are hopeful that the cold weather will continue and the lifts will start spinning in the early part of December. But, it is the Pocono's, so be sure to check to keep an eye on the opening date.
