Warm and relatively dry weather may interfere with planned opening days for Utah ski resorts. The Salt Lake Tribune gives details in this new article. Here are excerpts:

Solitude in Big Cottonwood Canyon, however, will open Friday as announced. Three runs - Moonbeam, Apex and Links - have enough artificial snow to ski on, said spokesman Dave DeSeelhorst. But most of the mountain awaits some good, old-fashioned Utah dumps of the white stuff.

The Canyons, near Park City, is holding fast to its Saturday start date, said Libby Dowd. But resort officials will make the final decision in the coming days.
