The last week has been made up of colder mountain temperatures and has had local ski areas making snow around the clock. Arapahoe Basin kicked off its ski season last Sunday with skiers and boarders celebrating the first resort in the area to run their lifts. And late yesterday Keystone made the big announcement that TOMORROW 10/28/22 will be their opening day!

Keystone will bring back night skiing on weekends and holidays starting Thanksgiving Day.

The other local resorts will soon follow suit with Breckenridge scheduled to open on November 11 and Copper Mountain on November 14.
