Looking for a fun way to burn some of those excess Thanksgiving calories? The Ogden area's three ski resorts have got you covered.
Powder Mountain kicked off the 2011-12 ski and snowboard season Tuesday with the opening of its Sundown lift for night skiing. Its two neighbors to the west, Snowbasin and Wolf Mountain, will open portions of their slopes for day use on Thursday and Friday, respectively.
In keeping with tradition, Snowbasin has chosen Thanksgiving Day for its opener. The Little Cat and Needles Gondola lifts will begin running at 9 a.m., with several groomed runs in the beginner-to-intermediate range.
