Breckenridge ski area on Wednesday postponed its scheduled Friday, Nov. 7, opening due to “unseasonably warm weather experienced throughout the region this past month.” The resort plans to announce a new opening day early next week.

“While we have been very optimistic about snowmaking efforts for Friday, warmer temperatures this week have slowed our efforts. As with all our resorts, our top priority is to provide our guests with a superior early season product,” said Breckenridge Vice President of Mountain Operations, Gary Shimanowitz. “Breck has one of the longest ski seasons in the country, and we want to make sure the experience is fun and safe from the start.”

Earlier this week Keystone announced it will open on Friday, along with Copper Mountain. Both of those ski areas pushed their opening days back a week due to the warm weather.

Breck and Wolf Creek had planned to open on Friday. Wolf Creek on Wednesday announced it will open for weekends only starting Saturday, Nov. 8..

Both Arapahoe Basin and Loveland are currently open for skiing.

Breck will provide daily updates at Breckenridge.com/2014OpeningDay and will announce a revised opening early next week.
