Snow may be on its way in time for more Vermont ski resorts to open for Thanksgiving weekend

I flew in over a frosty-topped Camel's Hump yesterday afternoon after a trip out of town. I soon heard that the forecast calls for a winter storm tonight into Wednesday! Could be a few to several inches of snow accumulation, or a mix of rain and snow depending where you are in Vermont.

The new colder temperatures and potential snowfall may help those Vermont ski resorts that want to open this Thanksgiving week and weekend.

Stowe has confirmed that they will open on Wednesday, November 23. Killington has continued to remain open. Other resorts such as Sugarbush, Jay Peak, Smugglers' Notch, Stratton, Okemo and Mount Snow are also blasting snow and keeping a watchful eye on forecasts for their areas with plans to open ASAP.Snowmaking at Smugglers' Notch on Nov. 21
