Vail, Eldora delay openings; record snow at Jackson Hole

DENVER -- Lack of snow is forcing Vail Ski Resort to delay opening one week. Opening day was originally scheduled for Friday but it now will be Nov. 23.

Eldora Mountain Resort is also delaying its opening by a week.

Eldora is anxious to debut its $10 million makeover that includes a new lift that will let skiers and snowboarders do a lot more skiing and riding in less time.

Meanwhile in Wyoming, record early-season snowfall is being reported at Jackson Hole Ski Resort.

So far, 91 inches have been reported this season.

A large storm system arrives in Colorado on Friday, but the pattern for Thanksgiving week does not look snowy.
