The Opening Dates and What’s New for the Colorado Ski Resorts

     The air is getting cooler and the trees are changing color. The ski season is around the corner!

     Deverites are finally getting started to wait for snow as mountains gear up for the upcoming ski season. Colorado is too often named as the most popular places to ski in the world, owing to its spectacular mountain view and the quality of snow. Colorado also boasts 300 days of sunshine and more than 300 inches of snow a year. Our mountains are our home, and Coloradans love it when people from across the country come and share the wealth of excitement that our Colorado ski resorts offer. Most importantly, one of the reasons Colorado stands above the rest is our variety, both in the widespread locations of resorts and in the activities that we offer.

     It has been three decades since Colorado failed to offer skiing in October, while Keystone and Loveland opened on November 3 in 1992. Over the past 10 years, the average date for the first day of skiing in Colorado has been October 22. Last year, Wolf Creek was the first Colorado ski resort to open and Arapahoe Basin cranked up the lifts the next day. Keystone opened on October 22 and Loveland on October 30.

     This year, many Colorado ski resorts are gearing up to open as soon as they can. Next is the time of year when many ski areas announced tentative opening dates. Please note that all opening dates are projected and are subject to change according to weather and conditions. Last but not least, we are also introducing some of what will be new this season at Colorado ski resorts.
