BOISE -- KTVB's meteorologists aren't the only people watching the weather. We talked to four Idaho resorts about the weather front coming in off the coast and what it means for their mountains.

We were ecstatic, said Tamarack spokesperson, Wolfe Ashcraft when asked about the forecast. We need some snow and especially early season it would be really good to get a good base down.

Opening day at Tamarack is set for December 15, no matter how much snow they get.

Ski season is already open at Sun Valley. It kicked off on Thanksgiving. However, the front coming in could mean opening more runs.

We're excited for our guests to open up more terrain on Baldy and Dollar, said Jack Sibbach, from Sun Valley Resort.

Folks at Sun Valley are hoping it will bring more people out.

When snow comes down and people know about it, the phones ring, the website gets double the traffic, and people are interested. So it's a really catalyst to getting people here, Sibbach said.

People at Brundage are also watching the weather closely.

We already have 8 inches to 18 inches on different parts of the mountain. So we're not starting from scratch. We just need one good cold storm to come through and we'll be ready, said April Russell, at Brundage Mountain Resort.

Russel said if this front brings enough snow, they could open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. They plan to be open seven days a week on December 14.

Down at Bogus Basin, things are a little less certain.

It will probably bring some snow at the higher elevations but it certainly looks like our base area won't fare very well, said Bogus Basin's General Manager, Alan Moore.

Bogus staff is aiming to open the first or second week of December.
