Colorado Resorts Start Making Snow for 2013/14 Ski Season

Denver, Colo. – Sept. 28, 2013 – Two Colorado resorts are taking advantage of cold temperatures by making snow in preparation for the 2013/14 ski season. Loveland Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area started making snow last night (on the evening of September 27) and will continue as conditions allow.

Colorado is consistently the first state to open for ski season and boasts one of the longest ski seasons with resorts that open in the fall and stay open until late spring.

As snowmaking continues, and as natural snow falls, Arapahoe Basin and Loveland anticipate opening in a matter of weeks. A full list of scheduled open dates can be found at
