FLAGSTAFF, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

"While we had to delay our opening due to unseasonably warm and dry weather, our crews have taken advantage of every cold night to make as much snow as possible," said J.R. Murray, GM at Arizona Snowbowl. "We're excited to kick off the 80th ski season, and our mountain crews have been working around the clock making snow and grooming the slopes until we were able to determine there were [sic] enough snow to open one lift with skiing from top to bottom."
