10 Colorado Resorts to Ski this Thanksgiving

Wondering how you’ll spend your time in Colorado this Thanksgiving? In many parts of the country, November is considered part of fall rather than a winter month. The trees are bare, but there’s only the occasional snow flurry. In Colorado, however, ski season begins in November for most resorts around the state. Last week, Colorado got wave after wave of snow storms, and several of the mountains that are already open reported 30 to 40+ inches in a 7 day span. Even more snow is in the forecast for this weekend, with predictions of up to 30 more inches for some areas.
