South Dakota ski resorts hope all the snow already covering the Black Hills bodes well for this year's season.
The ski season typically begins over Thanksgiving weekend.
Ski Mystic Deer Mountain general manager Alicia Salas says it was so short of snow last year that the chairlifts didn't start operating until January.
Terry Peak Ski Area general manager Tom Marsing says the early October blizzard that piled up record amounts of snow could mean an earlier than usual opening there.
