BESSEMER TOWNSHIP - Skiers and snowboarders flocked to Black River Basin last weekend as Snowriver Mountain Resort opened the site on Thanksgiving Day - the first to open in the region for the season.

Sunshine and temperatures in the mid-40s made for spring-like skiing, with a steady flow of activity at the Bessemer Township site while The Globe visited on Friday.

Josh Johnson of Bessemer was helping his son, Jack, 4, as he continued to improve his technique in his second year of skiing.

"He gets frustrated, but he likes it," said Johnson of Jack.
