Skiing over Thanksgiving weekend has become an annual tradition for many Colorado families. Warm weather earlier in the month has caused some resorts to temporarily postpone their opening days, but Mother Nature recently reminded us all that the ski season is not going anywhere. There are currently five ski resorts open and six more will be open by the end of the weekend.

Opening Day at Purgatory, Opening Day at Purgatory – Nov. 19, 2016.
