Today in stoke: Loveland opens Chair 6 tomorrow. Cough. Cough

Feeling a little Friday flu coming on? Tomorrow's a perfectly good day for a sick day, with more than 33 inches of snow at Loveland since opening day on Sunday and Chair 6 opening tomorrow. Loveland opened Nix Nox and Spillway this morning, and will open Keno, Blackjack, Roulette, Straight Flush, Royal Flush, and Lower Richards Run tomorrow, bringing the total to 16 runs. Not bad for October! A-Basin's also open, with a 19-inch base and more than 17 inches in the last couple days alone, and its brand new Black Mountain Express lift running strong.

Don't miss Soren McCarty's opening day photos from Loveland and A-Basin. Full schedule of opening days at other Colorado ski areas after the jump.
