We are hard pressed to think of anything better than the sheer gluttonous bindging of our favorite candy and sweet treats on Halloween weekend, except maybe fresh powder turns in October.
Skiers and riders, this weekend, three Colorado resorts will be open for some early season skiing and snowboarding. The recent storm that came in this week dropped a significant amount of that snow in Colorado Ski Country. Some areas reported getting nearly two feet of new snow, making this Halloween weekend the perfect time to log your first turns of the 2011-12 season.
Earlier this week, Wolf Creek announced that the resort would again be open for weekend operations from Saturday, October 29 Monday, October 31. After receiving 22 of new snow this week, Wolf Creek has decided to open more runs. This weekend, Wolf Creek will be running four lifts to service 95 percent of their terrain. Thats right, 95 percent of the mountain will be open for skiers and riders to enjoy that untouched snow from Wednesday. Check out WolfCreekSki.com for more information and lift ticket prices.
In addition to Wolf Creek, Arapahoe Basin and Loveland will continue to turn chairs for skiers and riders this Halloween weekend. All three resorts received copious amounts of snow and conditions are incredible for this early in the season.
Keep an eye on our opening dates page. Copper Mountain is scheduled to join the party next Friday, November 4. Other resorts that are scheduled to open in November include: Winter Park, Eldora, Steamboat, Monarch, Crested Butte, Telluride, Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, Ski Cooper and Purgatory.
Colorado ski season is here, time to get on board.
