DENVER (AP) — More Colorado ski resorts are opening in time for the holiday weekend thanks to early snow and good snowmaking conditions.

Steamboat Resort will open Wednesday with up to 60 acres of terrain, the most on opening day since 2014. The opening day festivities will include a snow dance by the Northern Ute Indian Tribe.

The Steamboat Pilot & Today  reports  snowmaking crews were able to run snow guns more frequently this month.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort will open for the season on Thursday. Sunlight Mountain Resort near Glenwood Springs will open for its 52nd season Friday but only for the weekend.

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent  reports  it's the first time Sunlight will be open for Thanksgiving weekend since 2014.
