LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) — New York's state-run ski centers in the Adirondacks are ready to open, after a recent cold snap allowed them to make snow around the clock.

Gore and Whiteface have announced that opening day will be Saturday.

Gore Mountain will offer five trails accessed from the Adirondack Express II lift. Skiers can get $10 off their lift ticket if they donate a nonperishable food item for a food drive.

Whiteface will offer skiing and snowboarding via the Cloudsplitter Gondola.

New York's state-run Catskills resort, Belleayre, is scheduled to open Nov. 24.
