Upcoming Events: Aspen Mountain 2017 Opening Day, Eldora 2017 Opening Day

Loveland officially opens 2009/2010 season

Ski Area Opens First

Wow, opening over a week earlier than the previous season (and the earliest in 40 years), Loveland has officially opened the 2009/2010 season and is the first ski area to do so in North America. Through snowmaking, they’ve started the season with an 18-inch base.

Arapahoe Basin, the annual competitor in the #RaceToOpen (Twitter hashtag to follow instant updates), congratulated Loveland and then announced they, too will open this week (Friday).

I don’t know about you, but I’m not quite ready yet. I thought I was ready… but I’m not ready. See you up there!
