FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Unseasonably warm temperatures aren't making the coming ski season easy for Arizona Snowbowl.
On Wednesday, Snowbowl announced that its projected opening date of Friday, Nov. 17 has been pushed back. They're now hoping to open the slopes the week of Thanksgiving.
Cooler temperatures are expected in northern Arizona between now and Thanksgiving.
"Our snow guns have been running at every available opportunity," J.R. Murray, the general manager at Arizona Snowbowl, said in a press release. "Snowbowl's opening date will be announced once we have made sufficient snow to provide the best possible ski product. All of us at Snowbowl are excited to kick off the ski season, and we'll open as soon as possible."
