They also opened Friday with this tweet: https://twitter.com/sundayriver/status/1053280973146722306 Ski areas in the East have had to heavily depend on making the snow, due to predominently warmer-than-average temperatures this Autumn. In the West, it has been more of the natural snow for places like Arapahoe Basin in Colorado.
