Ski resorts will open early due to winter storms

Winter snow conditions create dangerous driving conditions, but are pushing ski resorts to open early.

Winter storm and snow squall warnings have been issued for large parts of Utah today.

The snow brings with it dangerous driving conditions and risk for power outages, but also much needed moisture.

Some ski resorts like Brighton and Solitude will now open much earlier than expected. The two resorts will open this Friday, November 11th.
