Time to wax up those skis and boards!

Lots of early snow means the White Pass Ski Area will open on Saturday. Spokesperson Kathleen Goyette says it's been at least 10 years since they've been able to open so early and with so much snow, she says, "Really, I can't remember when we've been able to open such full operation so early in the year."

The ski area will be open Saturday and Sunday with 75 percent of terrain open. Goyette says they'll operate the ski area this weekend and then close Monday through Wednesday and reopen for daily operations beginning on Thanksgiving Day.

The tubing and nordic areas will be closed this weekend.
