Snowshoe, W.Va. (AP) -- Skiers will have to wait a little longer to hit the slopes at Snowshoe Mountain.

The Pocahontas County resort originally had planned to open its ski slopes Nov. 25.

Mild temperatures and a lack of snow prompted snowshoe to postpone the 2009-2010 season's opening until Friday.

But another round of mild weather is expected this week.

Snowshoe announced Monday that the ski season will be delayed one more day and will begin Saturday.

Snowshoe says it decided to wait another day because cold temperatures and some snow are expected Thursday.

West Virginia's three other ski resorts don't plan to open until Dec. 10 or 11.
