Colorado Ski Resort Opens Friday, First in the U.S.
Sorry, Keystone. You almost had 'em. As we were just about to share that Keystone would be the first ski resort to open, in true A-Basin fashion, well, it had to win the #racetoopen.
Typically, the annual rivalry is between Arapahoe Basin and its next door neighbor, Loveland Ski Area, so we were a little surprised to hear that Keystone would fire up the lifts ahead of every other resort this year — and not just in Colorado, but in all of North America, Denver7 reported.
However, at around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, October 11, A-Basin posted on Instagram that it would open from 3:30 pm. to 5:30 p.m., sliding right ahead of Keystone like an avalanche.
Keystone will open Saturday, October 12.
