We love headlines like these. Hopefully its a sign of what Colorados ski season has in store for us. Winter Park will open 4 days earlier than planned, making the official season start on November 12, 2012.

Winter Park will have 36 acres and 5 trails accessible via 4 lifts; Arrow, Gemini, Endeavour and depending on conditions, the Discovery lift.

Mother Nature played a part but really its the snowmakers and groomers that get resorts open early. (photo)

First chair is at 8:30am on Saturday, November 12, 2011. Winter Park will be open daily through April 22, 2012, 9:00am 4:00pm weekdays and 8:30am-4:00pm on weekends.

Winter Park will join other Colorado resorts in 2011/12 season operations including Wolf Creek, Loveland, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain. Check here for opening day info, and check frequently because at this rate, who knows who might open next.
