Will they open? Or will they not?

Have you got a coin nearby? Pick it up and toss it in the air. Heads = some Vermont ski resorts will open on Saturday or Sunday. Tails = they won't.

At this point, it's really up to Mother Nature to deliver some consistent cold temperatures for snowmaking. There is also some noise about the potential for natural snowfall on Friday night. It will probably hit while I'm driving home from my family's holiday gathering, no doubt.

I've updated the list of opening dates at this blog post called "<link post when-do-vermont-ski-resorts-open external-link-new-window ski resorts opening>When do Vermont ski resorts open?" Best to check the resort Web sites to see what's happening at your favorite Vermont ski area.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
