FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – China Peak officials announced on Friday that the mountain resort will delay Saturday’s opening.

Tim Cohee said It looks like we will be delaying our opening to Fri. Dec. 17. Cohee says we made snow all night Thursday but it won’t be enough to open ski runs with the natural snow we received during the day Thursday.

Resort officials say they will continue to make snow early through next week, but visitors can expect most, if not the entire mountain, to be reopened by Friday, Dec. 17 for the holidays.
