Some Colorado ski resorts postpone opening days, others offer activities for Thanksgiving visitors

DENVER (AP) — This fall’s unseasonably warm weather has forced several Colorado ski resorts to postpone their opening day but some are still offering activities for visitors over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Telluride Ski Resort, which won’t open until Dec. 2, has created a “snow play area” for sledding, as well as a small terrain park for skiers and snowboarders.

On Thanksgiving Day, Aspen Skiing Company plans to offer free sightseeing by gondola on Aspen Mountain and Snowmass to mark its opening day. But skiing and riding will be limited to Snowmass.

A number of other resorts will be open for the holiday weekend and fresh snow is expected to fall in the mountains Wednesday night through Thursday morning.

Steamboat Springs and Winter Park opened on Wednesday and Wolf Creek and Crested Butte are set to open Thursday.
