How is the snow in November? Is the Mountain good for skiing? How many of the lifts and runs are open? Is it worth coming up if I come up around the 20th of November? Thanks for your help.

It's impossible to predict what the conditions will be 11 months from now (you seem to have posted this message on December 15).

However, ski conditions in mid-November are generally poor. If a ski area is open at all that early, you'll probably be skiing on artificial snow, and very few runs will be open.

Why do I have the feeling your post was a "troll"?

Default Not sure what a troll is?

I've been skiing in Colorado in December and around Spring Break and had alot of fun. I am bringing my family up there and was planning on a Thanksgiving ski trip, but after seeing the snow conditions this year I knew I didn't want to chance it if their is little snow or their is not that many runs open.

I would not plan a trip around Thanksgiving. Snow is very iffy. As winglady said, you will most likely skiing a handful of groomed trails with man-made snow. However, you could luck out and there could be several big dumps before Thanksgiving (like last year). The only problem with big early season snow is that the resorts typically don't staff for full operations until after Thanksgiving -- so even if there's snow, there may not be enough workers to do control work, staff the lifts, etc.
