As the crews at the Breckenridge Ski Resort keeping working overtime for opening day, they had a little help from Ullr last night.  The resort reported 5 inches of fresh snow and great snowmaking temps.  The snowmakers have been doing more than their share of creating the treasured white stuff to get the 2016/2017 ski season started. 

On November 19th at 9 a.m., the Colorado SuperChair on Peak 8 will start for the season.  It may not be the best ski run of the year, but it gets everyone excited and cheering to Ullr to keep bringing on the powder.  As dust off your ski boots and skis and get ready to clip in tomorrow!
