SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Snow has arrived in New York, and ski resorts are marking the occasion with plans to open this weekend before the Thanksgiving.

Whiteface Mountain

Whiteface Mountain will be open on Saturday and Sunday. Lift tickets are available at a special rate for opening weekend and their Snow Report says the Face Lift will begin loading at 9 a.m. and the Summit Quad at 10 a.m.

Whiteface says they currently have snow blowing on Paron’s Run, The Follies, Excelsior, Summit Express, Broadway, Boreen and Brookside and they hope to have them all open on Saturday.

The mountain will close down again on Monday, November 21, but is set to reopen daily on Friday, November 25.

Whiteface would like to remind skiers and snowboarders that during early season, snow can include some bare areas and thin cover, so it is important to remain cautious.

Gore says four trails are set to be open, including Saddle Area with portions of Sunway, Quicksilver, 3b, and Jamboree.

The trails are for skiers with intermediate and advanced abilities and there may be walking from the trail to the lift in the Base Area.
