    Southwestern Pennsylvania's two largest ski resorts are celebrating White Friday.

    Seven Springs Mountain Resort and Hidden Valley, both in Somerset County, have opened for the season.

    Both have taken advantage of colder than normal temperatures to make snow.

    Eric Mauck, the Chief Executive Officer at Seven Springs says both resorts have at least 12 inches of snow, with drifts 10 to 12 feet high in some areas.

    Two other western Pennsylvania ski resorts are waiting a bit longer to open, however.

    Blue Knob All Seasons Resort expects to open for skiing one of the first two weekends in December.

    Tussey Mountain Ski Area in Boalsburg is shooting for a mid-December opening.

    In the Poconos, Camelback Mountain, Blue Mountain and Spring Mountain all opened Black Friday, as well.
