Copper Mountain, Keystone Resort and Wolf Creek All Open This Weekend

Arapahoe Basin was first -- as usual -- but two other Summit County ski resorts, Copper Mountain and Keystone Resort, will open today, despite warm weather recently that pushed back Keystone's original opening-day plan. In addition, Wolf Creek down in southwestern Colorado, opens this weekend as well.

But with temperatures dropping and snow falling, the rest of this state's resorts will soon be online. We profile them all in The Edge, our insider's guide to the 2014 ski and snowboard season that's inserted in the November 6 issue of Westword; we'll be rolling out those profiles as the mountains open, but here are your guides to the three that cranked up the lifts today.
