Loveland Ski Area Opens Today for Skiing in the Rocky Mountains

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, October 7th, 2009 at 1:14pm.

Loveland Ski Area announced yesterday it would open today - its earliest opening in 40 years! The ski area, located 50 minutes west of Denver, starting running lifts this morning at 9am and is the first resort in the state to open.

The ski area opens with only one run, but it's a great sunny day today and a perfect way to break in the ski legs for the winter ahead. Loveland has been making snow since September 21 and has tree to tree coverage with an 18 inch base. Conditions are looking good for early season.

Each year the rivalry and a "race to open" takes place between Loveland Ski Area and A-Basin Ski Resort. Last year the two resorts tied and the two previous years, A-Basin Ski Resort won the race. We applaud Loveland for their snowmaking efforts and congratulate them on the opening 'win'. A-Basin opens on Friday.

We're eager to get on the slopes and take some turns ourselves!
