If you're looking for something to do Thanksgiving week other than eat or shop, many Tahoe snow resorts are now open.

After winds delayed Friday's initial opening day, Heavenly Mountain Resort opened for the 2013-14 ski and ride season on Saturday.

The resort opened the Gondola and Tamarack Express, accessing 14 acres and 1.5 miles of skiable terrain. The resort plans to open additional terrain this week, conditions permitting.

Northstar California Resort also opened Saturday, and Kirkwood Mountain Resort is slated to open on Monday, giving season pass holders access to all three Tahoe resorts leading into the Thanksgiving holiday.

Here are some additional 2013-14 Lake Tahoe ski resort opening dates (weather and conditions permitting):

I haven't wrapped my head around the fact that summer is gone. Now the ski resorts are open and Thanksgiving is here. I'd better get hustling on the Christmas shopping!!

Not much of a skier or snow person, but glad there is finally snow.
