Mother Nature has not been very friendly to the Breckenridge ski resorts this fall. Going into the 2014/2015 ski season, there has been little snow that has blanketed the ground. The temperatures have also not been favorable, with temperatures higher than normal. The Breckenridge ski season was suppose to kickoff on Halloween, but because of the warmer temperatures, snowmaking operations have been limited. This Friday, November 7th, the ski season will start with a bang when three ski resorts start their lifts. Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone having been preparing for opening day, by making snow, with the help of the help of Mother Nature and the last storm. According to Laura Parquette, Keystone’s spokeswomen, “The last week has provided some strong temperatures for snowmaking.” So fingers crossed that winter sticks around in the high country!
Opening Day Terrain:
Breckenridge Ski Resort is keeping their fingers crossed and are hoping to still open as scheduled on Friday. They are still evaluating the terrain and will make an announcement if opening day is postponed.
Copper Mountain will have top-to-bottom lift service from Center Village. The American Eagle and Excelerator chairlifts will be running. Because of the lack of snow, the U.S. Ski Team has limited their practice. Earlier this week, some training was able to take place on the upper part of the mountain.
And if you cannot be patient until Friday, A-Basin and Loveland are both open for the season!
