Lookout Pass Ski Area plans to open for the winter season on Thursday. Schweitzer Mountain Resort and Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park have just announced they will open on Saturday.

This will be the first time the Mount Spokane resort has opened before Thanksgiving in many years, operators say.

These resorts will join 49 Degrees North which opened for one day on Sunday and will reopen on Friday.

Silver Mountain Resort hasn’t yet announced an opening date.

Resorts that are opening are on limited schedules with limited runs until more snow comes and allows full operations.
