Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio Many of Utah's ski resorts are hoping to open this month, but so far Mother Nature hasn't been very helpful.

It's a beautiful fall day, there's sunshine and it's warm, but for Utah skiers and ski resorts, they wish the skies were a little darker. "It doesn't make me worried. It's just the way that it is," Ski Utah's Jessica Kunzer said.

Kunzer says even with the lack of snowstorms, Alta Ski Resort still plans on opening on Nov. 15, with many other resorts following on Nov. 17. "But that could change. Mother Nature really ultimately makes the call," she said.

So, for those wanting to hit the slopes by Thanksgiving, keep doing those snow dances. "Continue to do your lunges, squats and core workout," Kunzer said.

It looks like there's a chance of some moisture on the weekend.
