Colorado ski season begins

Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, widely known as A-Basin, won the annual race to open first for Colorado’s ski season. Long lines of skiers and boarders took to the slopes there yesterday on an 18-inch base. Personally, I prefer to view the runs and scenes like this from the comfort of my living room, although in this state I’m pretty sure that puts me in the minority.

So, that’s one ski area open and one Trail Ridge Road closed for the season. It’s an early start that bodes well for our snowpack this winter.

 

... and that's my two cents
