The resort sent out a statement and Facebook post on Wednesday saying that the ski area was closed until further notice.

But then Gwendena Lee-Gatewood, the spokeswoman for the White Mountain Apache Tribe which owns the resort, says that the information on the statement and the Facebook post was incorrect.

On Thursday morning, she said the ski resort would open Friday, Dec, 15.

But then, the date changed again.

By Thursday afternoon, the resort sent out an email saying the new opening date would be Dec. 22.
