Skiers and snowboarders are getting a few more options of where to ride this weekend, as ski season picks up.
Copper Mountain and Keystone Resort are opening for the season Friday, with incentives for people who show up early. Keystone plans to have doughnuts, hot cocoa and coffee for early birds, while Copper plans to pass out free drink holders that are good for drink specials.
Until now, only Arapahoe Basin and Loveland had been open.
The Colorado ski industry is hoping to bounce back from a lackluster snow year last season, but forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center are hazy on whether this year will be good for snow in Colorado.
