The winter blast of snow and below freezing temperatures the past week have allowed most area ski resorts to make enough snow to be able to open some slopes already.

Big Boulder Park in Kidder Township, Carbon County, became the first in the state to open for a ninth consecutive year when it greeted skiers Nov. 14. Today, Blue Mountain Ski Area near Palmerton in Carbon County and Shawnee Mountain in eastern Monroe County are slated to open their slopes for the season. Elsewhere in the Poconos, Camelback Mountain in Tannersville is expected to open for its 50th season on Saturday.

Elk Mountain near Union Dale in Susquehanna County is scheduled to open either Tuesday or Wednesday.

And on Dec. 6, Montage Mountain — the closest ski area to much of the Wyoming Valley — will hold its season opening at 9 a.m. at the Moosic resort that has gone by the name Sno Mountain in recent years. In addition to new LED trail lighting, the ski area will debut a redesigned lodge featuring new restaurants such as Johnny Rockets.
