Area ski resorts open for winter season

Wisp, Seven Springs, Ski Roundtop, and Ski Liberty and Whitetail all opened Friday.

The people who run the ski resorts said the extreme cold and the combination of natural and man-made snow helps them create and maintain a solid snow base.

“The day after Thanksgiving is great for us, and we’ve done it two years in a row, so we’re really happy about that,” said Roundtop Mountain Resort spokesman Chris Dudding. “This probably happens once every five or six years, so having it happen two years in a row is great.”

The parking lot at Pennsylvania’s Ski Roundtop was packed Friday.
