The Loveland and Arapahoe Basin ski areas opened this past Sunday and Monday, respectively. Last year, Loveland was also the first ski area to open, but because the fall was cooler, it was able to open on October 7 instead of October 24.
Loveland is a 45-minute drive from Boulder and A-Basin is about an hour and a half away (depending on traffic and weather, of course). Find out more about skiing near Boulder.
