Loveland and Arapahoe Basin ski areas have kicked off the race towards opening day. With the recent cold temperatures and a low pressure system that brought snow levels down to 8,000 feet, the two Colorado resorts have been making snow since Friday night. Temperatures were cold enough Saturday morning that I-70 commuters could see the Loveland snow guns blazing. Coloradans must be hitting their snow dance hard this year because this marks an early start to snow making season. Last year Loveland started making snow on October 4 and opened October 23. Both resorts would love to become the first ski resort in the nation to open for the season. Who will win the prize and when will it be? Stay tuned.
