Missouri ski resorts open Friday

EUREKA, Mo. (AP) — Ski resorts in Missouri will be ready for business this week after openings were delayed by a lack of snow.

Hidden Valley Ski Resort in Eureka, west of St. Louis, will open at 9 a.m. Friday. Snow Creek, located in Weston north of Kansas City, also plans a 9 a.m. opening on Friday.

Both ski areas delayed their openings because of a lack of snow. Both are opening with man-made snow.

Hidden Valley has installed a new double-lift in the beginner area, a 400-foot-long lift with 24 double-seat chairs.

Snow Creek features ski and snowboard runs along with a tube park.
