Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York's two state-owned ski centers in the Adirondacks are opening early for weekend business.

Friday's opening is the earliest ever for Whiteface in Essex County. Gore will open Saturday, its second-earliest opening day. Gore's earliest opening was Nov. 15 in 1986.

Ski enthusiasts can get the latest snow reports at the new "I Ski NY" website, www.iskiny.com.

Five trails, from the summit to the base of Little Whiteface will be open this weekend at Whiteface. At Gore, The Sunway Lift will take skiers and riders to the Jamboree Trail. The terrain park will also be open.

Whiteface and Gore will close at 4 p.m. Sunday and reopen next Friday.

In the Catskills, state-opened Belleayre is making snow in anticipation of a Nov. 29 opening.
