A. because these months consistently have the coldest temperatures

B. since the coldest temperatures are consistent

C. since they consistently have the coldest temperatures

D. which consistently have the coldest temperatures

E. these consistently have the coldest temperature

'Since' can be used in place of 'because' as long as the sentence retains the meaning.

A. because these months consistently have the coldest temperatures. Meaning is pretty clear as to why the ski is open during these months

B. since the coldest temperatures are consistent. Meaning is lost. The sentence is intended to say that these month shave consistent cold temperatures

C. since they consistently have the coldest temperatures. Who is 'they?

D. which consistently have the coldest temperatures. Which refers to 'August'

E. these consistently have the coldest temperature. Run on sentence
