Colorado ski season is off to a slow start


FRISCO, Colorado — Businesses say Colorado's ski season is getting off to a slow start this year.

Frisco Lodge owner Susan Wentworth says early November is usually a slow time of year but right now even bookings for the upcoming busy Thanksgiving holiday are not looking as strong as years past.

Warm and dry weather delayed Copper and Keystone from a Halloween opening which would have driven the first weekend of November's ski sales around town. The weather has been so nice that bikes are still rolling at the door at Rebel Sports, but ski rentals are slow.

According to KUSA-TV ( ), Rebel Sports manager Bob Hufnage says he hopes things pick up later this month.
