CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. (AP) -- Crested Butte Mountain Resort is marking Dec. 12, 2012, with a special deal.
On Wednesday, 12/12/12 after 12:30 p.m., visitors can buy half-day lift tickets for $12. Half-day tickets this time of year are usually $45.
The date also is special for Ski Granby Ranch. That's when the northern Colorado ski area will start its ski season.
Some Colorado resorts are still waiting for more snow before holding opening day. Monarch Mountain and Aspen Highlands have pushed back the start of their ski seasons while they wait for the weather to cooperate.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service says that statewide snowpack levels are far below average.
