Ski company spokesman Jeff Hanle says the only runs open through Friday are those with man-made snow. 

The top of the mountain will remain closed for skiing for the time being because the natural snowpack is not enough to provide a useable base.

Hanle tells the Aspen Daily News skier visits have been adequate since the mountain began lift service on Thanksgiving Day.
