Colorado is expected to be the first state with a continuously open ski area this year. Due to early snow accumulation across the front range — many ski areas are getting ready to open soon. Arapahoe Basin Ski Area and Loveland Ski area are producing snow to make their slopes ready for the 2018 season. Arapahoe Basin opened on October 19 with Loveland Ski Area following the day after on October 20.

“The early season snow is exciting for skiers and riders who have been waiting for the winter season,” said Melanie Mills, president and CEO of Colorado Ski Country. “With Wolf Creek open for weekend skiing and riding, we’re looking forward to more Colorado ski areas opening for the season in the coming weeks and months with new lifts, terrain expansions, new dining experiences and other offerings ready for guests to Colorado’s ski areas.”
Make sure to keep your eyes on the local ski areas to take full advantage of the early season snowfall.
