A Basin to open Sunday 10/13

ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colo. – Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) announced that Sunday, October 13, 2013, will mark the official start to the Colorado ski and snowboard season. Early-season snow, low temperatures and snowmaking upgrades allowed A-Basin to open four days earlier than last season. The Black Mountain Express lift will start at 8:30 a.m. MST to shuttle guests to the top of the intermediate High Noon trail at mid-mountain. - See more at: opensnow.com/news/…sthash.JlVFIijo.dpuf

Let the fun begin. Did we even have an "off" season this year?

From the local news

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g28927-i252-k69107…

KUSA - The race is on for which ski slope is going to open up first this ski season.

Arapahoe Basin Ski Area announced they will open on Sunday. The Black Mountain Express lift will start at 8:30 a.m. to shuttle guests to the top of the intermediate High Noon trail at mid-mountain.

In 2012, A Basin was the first Colorado ski mountain to open for the season.

Loveland Ski Area is still making snow. They plan to open within a week if snowmaking efforts go well.

Keystone Resort plans to open on Nov. 1. Vail will open on Nov. 22. Steamboat will open on Nov. 27.

Does not seem like a very close "race" ....

Keystone reporting 7 " new. Why oh why is that not on a ski day? https://www.facebook.com/Keystone

A-Basin reporting 4" new seems like a nice start to the season!!

I do think it is refreshing that the areas are showing a snow stake rather than just reporting an amount. I have often thought they managed the snow reports....
