Ski season is underway in the Rockies with the opening of Arapahoe Basin in Keystone, Colorado. With an 18" base, the ski area was only able to open one lift and one intermediate run with the help of some aggressive snow-making. "It was incredibly cold up here. We just made a ton of snow. We've been making snow since then and we've got enough to get it open," Alan Henceroth, A-Basin chief, said. The ski area is typically one of the first to open, but other ski resorts are crossing their fingers for a good snow season. "We always anticipate a big year. But this year it's looking like it's lining up for some southern flows early on which we always get excited about at Eldora," Eldora Resort's Rob Linde said.
