Loveland and Arapahoe Basin typically duel for the title of first in Colorado, with Loveland winning the race last year on Oct. 24 but this time southern and southwestern mountains won.
Forecasters are calling for a second wave of mountain snow Saturday evening into the day Sunday.

“I’ve been a skier in Colorado for more than 40 years,” says Jay. “Although I’ve seen a few rare occasions when ski areas have opened at Halloween, I’ve never seen an area open this early. Snow and freezing temperatures from the same storm are predicted for my hometown of Colorado Springs tomorrow.”
