I have been there a number of times on the first week and never saw the ground frozen. Last year was the first week that I saw some snow down low.

The weather tends to be better in early weeks. The early weeks are also loaded with repeat pros. There is less competition in later weeks and so from a get gold perspective most people would be better off in later weeks.

The reason they open when they do is ground is not frozen.
