Preparing for my first ski trip has been fun. Will be at keystone. I have been following the snow reports/openings for several places. It seems that there is plenty of snow in plenty of areas yet many are only 3-10 percent open. My question is WHY? If there is plenty of snow, why not open as many lifts/runs as possible. (I may be making a wrong assumption as to what constitutes 'plenty of snow'). For those resorts with snow making ability, it seems the tempatures have been plenty cold to make all they need. So, why do resorts only open a few runs and a few lifts when it seems there is plenty of snow to be 50-75 percent open??
