3 Colorado ski resorts reopening this weekend

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Three Colorado ski resorts are reopening to take advantage of plentiful snow.

Purgatory opened Friday for an extra weekend and Sunlight Mountain and Powderhorn Mountain are also welcoming skiers and snowboarders back on Saturday and Sunday.

Other ski resorts say they'll stay open longer this season because of the good conditions.
