Some Ski Resorts have started to open their doors for the season, News5 wants to know, what is your favorite ski resort?

Results:
45% Monarch
27% Breckenridge
13% Keystone
8% Vail
6% Aspen

Editor's note: This survey is not based on scientific, representative samples and is solely for KOAA purposes.

The latest storm dropped a foot or more in the Colorado mountains on Thursday. More fresh snow is good news for natural snow ski areas like Monarch Mountain. Monarch hopes to open by Thanksgiving if mother nature is giving. They need a solid foot to 18 inches from a storm to consider opening soon.

Friday will be a cold day in the mountains in the teens and 20s, but snow showers will wrap up. Be careful driving in likely icy conditions Friday morning. This weekend will be sunny with temperatures returning to the 30s or 40s at open ski areas.
