Since mid-October it's been cold enough for their crews to keep the snow guns blasting and they say they're set to go for Thanksgiving weekend. It's tough to keep gung ho Idahoans off the slopes even with an inch of base snow. There is much more than that already and with Thanksgiving in the mix, opening weekend is bound to be a party. "People need their fix out here," says skier Jim Grace. "We'll take it how we can get it. Plus I hear that there is a chance of some more snow later this week."
