Arapahoe Basin opened for the season Wednesday morning, its earliest opening in its history.

The Exhibition chairlift opened around 9 a.m.

There is an 18-inch base on its intermediate High Noon run, but there isn't any beginner terrain open yet.

Arapahoe Basin traditionally competes with Loveland to be the first resort to open in Colorado each year.

Last year Arapahoe Basin opened on Oct. 13.
