Keystone Snow report: 0″,0″, 0″

Summit Daily field report: So far Thanksgiving morning is mellow, but that could all change by mid-morning. Get out for some runs now, or wait for football to start and go with the waves.

Weather: High 28 degrees, low 9 degrees. Cloudy right now. Meteorologists are calling for snow later today and into the weekend, but it hasn’t started yet.

Lift lines: It’s a holiday, so expect the unexpected on lifts. Wait time could be 10-plus minutes at Montezuma Express and other busy chairs.

Breakdown: Resorts keep opening new terrain. First came A51, and Breck now has service from Beaver Run chair. Over in Eagle County, Beaver Creek opened for the season with 720 acres on Wednesday. Time to give thanks.
