Warm temperatures early this week will keep some lifts closed

Mother Nature helped fuel the excitement for a snowy start to the 2011 - 2012 ski season, and five Vermont ski resorts ran lifts this Thanksgiving weekend. But today two of the ski areas have closed until temperatures cool off and more snow can be made.

Sugarbush and Jay Peak have suspended operations today until they can move or make more snow.

Killington, Okemo and Stowe remain open today while temperatures hit the 50s in many towns and villages. Stowe reported that they did not groom the slopes so as to preserve the snow that is there. Check their <link internal-link>snow conditions to see what happens on Tuesday and later in the week.

As we roll toward December and the opening dates for a long list of Vermont ski resorts, its time that we get some steady winter temperatures, don't you think?! Let's hope this warm weather moves out and stays out!
