While October delivered quite a bit of fresh snow to the mountain west, November has been nothing but one long, extended heat wave. Essentially, any base that a resort in California, Utah or Colorado had has now melted, making it extremely difficult for the ski areas to open by their original proposed date. Below, we’ve compiled a list of 12 resorts across the United States that have had to push back their opening day this week. While some have given an amended opening date, others have had to postpone entirely—until Mother Nature decides it’s time to slide on snow.
