WESTON, Mo. — For those waiting to hit the slopes at Snow Creek, the wait will persist at least past Friday according to the resort.

Snow Creek planned to welcome guests beginning at 4 p.m., Friday, but say through social media channels that a power outage and extreme cold have postponed opening day.

The resort said it was already dealing with a delayed start to the season due to mild temperatures earlier this month, which kept it from opening on its original target date of December 17.

While tumbling temperatures and actual snow helped with preps this week, the resort says it will announce a new first day as soon as it can.

While this is subject to change, Snow Creek had planned to open with access to the Show Me, Tiger, Long Rider and Easy Rider. It said tubing wouldn’t be available had it opened on Friday.

The season hours are expected to be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., beginning Monday. FOX4 will update this story with any developments should Snow Creek open over the weekend.
