Snow, Snowmaking Blanket Slopes From Coast To Coast
It's not the Polar Vortex, it's winter! And it has arrived across North America as ski resorts from coast-to-coast are turning on snowmaking and spinning the lifts.
We're off to a great start to the season and more cold and snow are in the forecast. Currently, more than 30 resorts across North America are open for the season, with dozens more scheduled to open this weekend. By Thanksgiving, more than 80 resorts will be open.
Check these recent snow, snowmaking and powder shots from across North America.
