The Breckenridge Ski Resort is kicking off its season, joining other Colorado resorts that are already open.
The resort is counting on a big storm bringing more than a foot of snow beginning Friday to some areas on the Western Slope.
Copper Mountain and Keystone Resort are now open, giving skiers and snowboarders more options of where to make turns in Colorado. Arapahoe Basin and Loveland opened in October.
The Colorado ski industry is hoping to bounce back from last season, when snowfall in large parts of the state was below average.
