This year Snowmass and Aspen Mountain are scheduled to open on Thanksgiving Day, with Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk following suit in early December.

The most recent winter storm at Silverton Mountain, Colorado also loaded up the mountain with as much as 2-3 feet of fresh snow!

This year's official start of the ski season at Silverton Mountain  is slated for December 21, 2013 but if the snow keeps up at this pace that date could be pushed up.
