The number of ski resorts currently operating in North America is about to double, with at least 5 more ski areas slated to open this weekend. In Colorado, Keystone and Copper Mountain will both open this Friday after delaying their October 31 opening due to unseasonably warm weather. Also in Colorado, Wolf Creek will open on Saturday at 9:00 am, only one day later than their expected opening date of November 7. Breckenridge Ski Resort was scheduled to open this Friday, but they've delayed opening day until sometime next week. In California, Tahoe skiers will be stoked to learn that Mt. Rose and Boreal will turn on the lifts this Friday after a Halloween storm dropped some much-needed precipitation. Get out there and ski!
Copper Mountain: The lifts will start turning on November 7 at 9:00 am, with
