You loaded up on gear at the Ski Swap a few weeks ago and you've been sitting on your sofa, sipping cocoa, patiently waiting for the white stuff to fly so you can actually use it.

Well, if you're up for a road trip to McCall this holiday weekend, your wish has been granted! According to CBS 2, it's been cold enough on the mountain to make enough snow to get Brundage's Easy Street lift up and running for the season! To celebrate, the resort will allow skiiers to access it for FREE Black Friday-Sunday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily.

Meanwhile, Bogus Basin is working out some kinks with their new snow-making equipment and are optimistic that mother nature will cooperate enough to get the mountain open by early December.  There's snow in the forecast for Bogus Wednesday-Saturday, with the bulk of it happening Thanksgiving night and Black Friday.
