Ski resort openings, cold and snow in the NorthEast and Northern US.

As we approach the last weekend before Thanksgiving the weather is giving us as much a mixed bag as ever for those of us wanting to get the winter ski and snowboard season's underway.

We will provide updates on resort openings as reports come in around the nation. I have just gone from near 80 degree weather in Boulder, Colorado to frigid temps in Boston. Nice to know winter is happening.

Reports are that snow making is going full speed and combined with natural snow in many places more and more resorts and areas will be opening for skiing and snowboarding this weekend and Thanksgiving holiday. Boy do I get more and more rumors on Twitter, emails and various social network sites we monitor and work.
