Hello! I'm Juliana Broste, aka "Traveling Jules," Colorado Ski Country's new Mountain Correspondent. With great honor, we kicked off the 2013-2013 ski season with a bang at A-Basin on Sunday, October 13, 2013. A-Basin is proud to be the first ski resort open--not just in Colorado--but in the whole country! Dedicated skiers and riders came out to celebrate opening day with an impressive lift line queue building up before sunrise! Enthusiasts loaded Black Mountain Express to mid-mountain and made turns down High Noon, with an adventurous crowd peeling off into High Divide Terrain Park. The crowd did not die off early, the lines lasted up until 4 o'clock closing. Cheers to the winter season! Bring on the snow!
