Eldora's Nordic ski area is set to open Saturday at 9 a.m., said spokesman Rob Linde.

Last weekend's snowfall and cold temperatures during the week prompted the resort to open the Nordic area this weekend. 

Only a few trails, including the Meadows Loop and the 17th Avenue trail, will open this weekend totaling 7K. Linde said the resort is antitipcating more snow through the weekend, which will help cover some "thin spots" on the trails.

"Things are going to get better quickly," he said.
