Sweet, another opening! Monarch Mountain in Colorado is all set to open next Wednesday, that’s the day before Thanksgiving, November 25th. This will be their 70th year of skiing and snowboarding, and they’ll have three lifts open that day: Pioneer, Panorama and Tumbelina. (On Saturday, the Garfield and Breezeway lifts will open.)

The Mountain has been dumped on by 60 inches of snow so far this season, and right now has a 36-inch mid-mountain base depth. More snow is expected for this weekend! For more info, check out
