After the recent bout of wintry weather this Halloween weekend, snow lovers now have six mountains open for skiing in North America. Colorado's Arapahoe Basin was the first to open a few weeks ago, but this past Saturday Loveland Ski Area joined the ranks of high-altitude resorts now open with an 18-inch base. Other Colorado heavyweights Keystone Resort and Copper Mountain had to delay their opening, but elsewhere in the country some smaller resorts managed to get things going. Minnesota's Wild Mountain was the first to open in the Midwest and North Carolina's Sugar Mountain also opened on Saturday. New England skiers will be pumped to learn that Maine's Sunday River ski area is open today, and tickets are free if you ski or ride in costume. Killington Resort in Vermont also opens today to pass holders, with a full opening tomorrow to the public. We've got a few photos from the various mountains, so let's take a tour of current snow conditions, shall we?
