Snowshoe Mountain (, pictured here during the area’s first snow last month, will officially open for the 2013-14 winter ski and snowboard season on Wednesday, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Kicking off its 40th season on Nov. 27, the resort plans to open at least three lifts and about 10 trails its first day. “We love being able to open in time for Thanksgiving. We recognize that people are excited to get up on the mountain and we are ready to get our 40th season started,” said Dave Dekema, marketing director of Snowshoe Mountain.
