Colorado's 2010/2011 ski and snowboard season officially opens

Welcome to the 2010 ski and snowboard season in Colorado! Opening just days after the first resort to open* in North America, Loveland Ski Area has claimed the “first to open” title here in Colorado: Sunday, October 24, 2010. Following a day behind is, of course, Arapahoe Basin on Monday, October 25, 2010.

Loveland and A-Basin are fierce rivals in this yearly ritual, despite being considerably smaller than neighboring ski areas on the I-70 corridor or in bordering states. Other occasional entrants include Maine’s Sunday River — often the first East Coast area to open. Read More

Most locals are not surprised with Loveland opening first. Since 1999, it has opened first nine times versus A-Basin’s two (they tied in 2008).
