DENVER (CBS4) – Vail Mountain is the latest Colorado ski resort to delay to start of their season due to warm, dry weather.
Vail’s opening day was originally planned for Friday, Nov. 17, but is now tentatively scheduled for Thanksgiving Day.
A quick moving storm is expected sometime late Thursday or early Friday and it could drop up to a foot of snow on northwest-facing slopes located west of the Continental Divide.
But beyond that the outlook for cold and snow doesn’t look too good for Colorado.
The latest long-range forecast from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center calls for warm and dry conditions through the end of the month.
