Colorado ski resorts Keystone and Copper Mountain will start running lifts Friday, while Wolf Creek Ski Area will open for weekends this Saturday, according to Denver’s ABC affiliate.

Breckenridge, which was scheduled to open Friday, postponed its first day indefinitely due to weather too warm for snowmaking. Keystone and Copper are opening a week later than originally planned.

Skiers and boarders will have five Colorado ski hills to choose from this weekend. Loveland and Arapahoe Basin, two of the highest-altitude resorts in the state, are already open. But don’t expect hero snow if you get up into the mountains: Wolf Creek described its coverage as “very limited,” and conditions are likely to be similar at the other resorts.
