The race is on.

Loveland Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area have fired up their snowmaking guns as they get ready for the upcoming ski season.

The resorts traditionally have raced to be the first to open, usually in October. Last year A-Basin was first, opening on the 13th of October.

Temperatures typically have to drop below about 28 degrees for the ski areas to turn the snow guns on. Both Loveland and A-Basin are on the Continental Divide.
