Meanwhile in Wyoming record early season snowfall is being reported at Jackson Hole Ski Resort. To the north, British Columbia's Whistler will open Friday.

"It looks like conditions could be pretty darned awesome for opening day", the website said.

There are several resorts yet to open in the Colorado high country. The Discovery, Chinook Express and Forest Queen Express lifts will run from 9 4 p.m. Lift tickets will be $45. A foot of natural snow fell during that week, ensuring good conditions. We are dedicated to providing our guests with the best early-season conditions & will continue to focus our efforts on opening with a high-quality snow surface.

Officials say Crystal Mountain will open Wednesday with limited operations and Mt. Baker Ski Area will open Thursday. The snow base at Heather Meadows was 33 inches, and the temperature was 30 degrees with snow falling Tuesday morning.

Vail's opening day was originally planned for Friday, Nov. 17, but is now tentatively scheduled for Thanksgiving Day. Just a bit more is needed. Fortunately, more snow is on tap tonight. "Stay tuned, and be ready".

For the second year in a row, Park City Mountain Resort has postponed its scheduled opening by a week. "Our mountain operations team is taking advantage of every opportunity to make snow in anticipation of opening on November 23".
