Warm fall means ski delays

Two Colorado ski resorts are postponing their opening days because of warm weather.Vail Resorts says it will open Vail Mountain ski area Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, instead of today as initially planned.Steamboat Springs says it will open on November 30th instead of Wednesday, meaning no skiing at all on the big Thanksgiving weekend.
If this sunny weather keeps up, don't count on Monarch or Ski Cooper. Both need natural snow to open.

Yeah, this is definitely screwing up my attempt to ski all the 13ers.

This clip about the 14er guy will give you all a chubby for the upcoming ski season though - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEwWUMyzZlE
