The holiday where Americans consume over 40 million turkeys is one of our favorites, because it's the start to 6 buzzing weeks of family-friendly holidays in the area.
Spend the Day Skiing
Many resorts (weather permitting) open their doors to skiers/riders before Thanksgiving Day! That means you can get out for a few turns before feasting with friends and loved ones. Here are 2020 / 2021 opening days for resorts that will be open on Thanksgiving (tentative dates based on snow conditions):
- Northstar California Resort: November 20, 2020
- Boreal Mountain: November 23, 2020
- Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows: November 25, 2020

Get Fit Before You Feast
Start the day right! Depending on the weather, head out for a cross-country ski or snowshoe, or even a scenic bike ride.
