After a few chilly days and below freezing nights area ski resorts are taking advantage of mother nature’s early taste of winter.
Some resorts plan to open by the end of the week hoping to draw in crowds a little early this year.
On Monday workers spent yet another day preparing for the 2013-2014 ski season.
“We’ve been able to make snow full to our water capacity. We basically can put down 11,000 gallons a minute and we’re going to be open for Black Friday,” Blue Mountain General Manager, Jim Dailey said.
Dailey says he is confident that the resort will be able to open seven trails on Black Friday.
He said the rain and sleet forecasted for this week should not have any major impacts.
If everything goes as planned, opening on Friday will tie for one of the earliest dates the resort has opened its trails.
