If you live in Girdwood, Alaska, you officially have an excuse to get out of pre-Thanksgiving preparations: Alyeska Ski Resort is opening today! Chairs 3 and 4 will be open from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. today, as well as the tram for foot passengers.  There is a 4-inch base of snow, 30 inches at mid-mountain, and 38 inches at the summit.  The Pond Cafe will be having a Thanksgiving holiday dinner tomorrow, so if you don’t want to cook at all, make a reservation today.  Enjoy the snow!
