In Utah, Colorado, California, western Canada, many ski resorts open early

Whistler_snowboard_thursdayFor those of you who can stay upright on skis -- a subset that does not include me -- heavy snow allowed a number of western resorts to open in the last few days, a week before their official opening was scheduled. Most have only a limited number of runs and lifts open, which usually means discounted lift tickets.

Among the newly opened resorts:

Utah: Snowbird, Alta, Park City and Brian Head. Solitude and Brighton had opened earlier.

Colorado: Vail, Snowmass, Breckenridge. Already open: Loveland, Arapahoe Basin, Wolf Creek, Copper Mountain and Keystone

California: Heavenly opened this weekend; also open are Mammoth and Northstar.

Canada: Whistler Mountain opened Friday. Sunshine Village and Lake Louise also opened early.

Those are just the highlights. Look here for detailed reports on dozens of North American resorts.

Don't look for me on the slopes. I'll be the one in the bar with a book and hot buttered rum.
